Dr. Brook Perry

Research Assistant

Brook completed his BA(Hons) in Psychology in 2010 at the University of Canterbury, in Christchurch New Zealand. In 2012, he completed and MSc, examining the impact of lesions to the diencephalon on spatial working memory tasks in rats. Brook then completed his Ph.D. in 2017 building on the work of his MSc, examining two models of diencephalic lesions in rats and their relative impact on spatial memory, immunohistochemical measures and electrophysiological coherence. In 2018, Brook started a post in Oxford as Postdoctoral Neuroscientist in Experimental Psychology working in Assoc Prof Anna Mitchell’s lab. In this role, Brook investigated the contribution of the mediodorsal thalamus to learning, memory and decision making by recording neural activity in awake behaving non-human primates using multi-contact laminar probes.

In 2021, Brook joined the research group of Andrew Sharott in the MRC BNDU as a Research Assistant to provide scientific support to the group’s projects investigating the function and dysfunction of cortical-basal ganglia thalamic circuits.
