Consciousness, anaesthesia, and memory: I am interested in the role of working memory and imagery in recollection, particularly recollection of emotional events. In relation to anaesthesia, Dr Catherine Deeprose (Plymouth University) and I have shown that small amounts of memory priming persist during surgery even when patients are conscious. I was a member of the steering panel for the Royal College of Anaesthetists' NAP5 project, the biggest ever study of awareness in anaesthesia. I worked with the Science Museum on their 'Pain Less' exhibition, which opened to the public in November 2012.
