Dr Deborah Talmi

Lecturer

One of the University's growing number of Sustainability Enthusiasts. Find out more about the initiativeĀ here.

I have completed an M.A. in cognitive psychology at Tel Aviv University, Israel, where I focused on memory mechanisms and specifically the distinction between short- and long-term memory. My Ph.D. work with Morris Moscovitch at the University of Toronto focused on emotional memory, specifically on cognitive mediators for enhanced memory for emotional material.

I have taken up further training with Ray Dolan as a post-doctoral research fellow at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging (UCL), focusing on emotional decision making, before beginning my lectureship at the University of Manchester in 2009. In addition to research and teaching I am involved in delivering the School's social responsibility agenda, and lead the school's efforts to become more environmentally friendly in my role of 'sustainability enthusiast'.
