Jonathan Lee [MA, PhD (Cantab)]
Senior Lecturer (j.l.c.lee [at] bham.ac.uk)

Joff LeeI spent all of my training years at the University of Cambridge, undertaking first a degree in Natural Sciences, specialising in Neuroscience. As part of this, I conducted a research project with Antony Dickinson, who provided me with an invaluable grounding in learning theory. I remained in Cambridge at the Department of Experimental Psychology to pursue a PhD, under the supervision of Barry Everitt and Kerrie Thomas, mainly focussed on the mechanisms of hippocampal contextual fear memory consolidation and reconsolidation. I remained in Barry Everitt's lab as a post-doctoral researcher, applying our understanding of memory reconsolidation first to cocaine self-administration settings, and then to natural reward-seeking settings. I was appointed first to a Departmental Lectureship at the Department of Experimental Psychology in the University of Cambridge, and subsequently to a Lectureship at the School of Psychology in the University of Birmingham.
