The School of Psychological Sciences and Health at the University of Strathclyde is looking to recruit a Research Associate to work on the project Agent-based Memory Prosthesis to Encourage Reminiscing (AMPER). As a Research Associate under the supervision and guidance of Dr Mario Alfredo Parra, you will play a key role within an interdisciplinary project funded by The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The project will focus on a user-centred design to create an embodied agent with a novel human-like autobiographical memory. You will help perform a carer-assisted intervention for personalised reminiscence (e.g., telling meaningful stories) to bring to the surface memories residing in the still viable regions of the brain. Autobiographical memory provides a reflection of “self” enabling an individual to relive an event. By building a technological bridge to unique life experiences and aiding recollection, patients’ sense of value, importance and belonging will be restored.
