Naomi Berry graduated with a B.Sc. in Biomedical Sciences from University College London in 2013. She then worked as a lab assistant in a hospital in London, and subsequently as a research technician in the Unit, providing support for a variety of projects. In 2016, Naomi returned to the Unit as an MRC-funded D.Phil. student to start her thesis research in the Sharott Group.
Naomi’s D.Phil. thesis research is focused on elucidating how different types of cortical neuron fire in relation to network beta oscillations in Parkinson’s disease. To achieve this, Naomi is using in vivo electrophysiological recording and juxtacellular labelling of individual neurons.
