Dr Jamie Murray
- Lecturer (Learning, Teaching & Scholarship) (Psychology & Neuroscience Education Hub)
I graduated in 2010 with a BSc (Hons) in Psychology from the University of Stirling. I then completed a PhD under the supervision of Prof David Donaldson and Prof Roger Watt in 2015. After my PhD, I spent three years as a post-doctoral researcher before becoming a lecturer at the University of Stirling. I moved into a lecturing position at the University of Glasgow in 2021.
My research background lies in the use of ElectroEncephaloGraphy (EEG) to understand how new information is encoded and retrieved from episodic memory. I'm interested in the development of new ways of manipulating and measuring memory using more naturalistic tasks than typically used in the laboratory - this includes developing measurements of memory precision and assessing how memories are influenced by how content is presented on social media. I'm also interested in how mental imagery interacts with memory and how memories might differ between those who can and cannot create vivid mental images.
I am course lead for Level 3 Physiological Psychology, teach on Level 2 Research Methods and supervise both undergraduate and post-graduate student dissertation projects. I am also the School's International Mobility Officer and co-lead of the Psychology Employability network.
