Sarah Buck

“Dynamic changes in episodic memory functional connectivity after anterior temporal lobe resection”
Buck S, Caciagli L, Vos SB, Duncan JS, Sidhu MK

Sarah Buck is originally from Belgium and moved to London in 2014 to pursue her career as a neuroscientist. She is now working at the Institute of Neurology (UCL) in the Department of Clinical and Experimental Epilepsy, and is examining the contribution of altered memory networks to neuropsychological symptoms. Sarah is also investigating changes in the memory network after surgical intervention to study a) the effect of surgery on network connectivity and b) plasticity of the memory network after surgery. The overall aim of her research is to guide surgical-decision making and reduce the risk of memory decline after epilepsy surgery.
