Dr Caroline Copeland is a Lecturer in Neuropharmacology at the Institute of Medical and& Biomedical Education, St George’s, University of London.

Dr Copeland is currently setting up her first research lab focusing upon mechanisms of thalamocortical synchrony. She is interested in the neuronal mechanisms that underlie synchronous activity in the thalamus, cortex, and massively interconnected thalamocortical system. These mechanisms underlie multimodal processes ranging from sensory perception, to cognition and attention. Her approach will be to analyse the discrete components that make up thalamic and cortical circuits using both in vitro and in vivo electrophysiology approaches, and optogenetics.
