Sam Ereira

Postdoctoral researcher of Computational and Cognitive Neuroscience, UCL


I am an MBPhD student at University College London.

I studied pre-clinical medicine at Oxford University, intercalating with a BSc in neuroscience. In 2014 I moved to UCL to undertake an MBPhD, so that i could do research alongside my medical studies.

Between 2015 and 2019 i did my PhD in computational and cognitive neuroscience at the Max Planck UCL Centre for Computational Psychiatry and Ageing Research and the Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging. My research used behavioral modelling and brain imaging to try and understand how the human mind distinguishes between Self and Other, and how this process might go wrong in mental health disorders. I am due to graduate from my medical training in 2021 and i hope to become a research clinician in psychiatry.
