Jane is the Scientific Coordinator for Edinburgh Neuroscience, University of Edinburgh. She has a BSc and a PhD in Pharmacology from UCL and spent 20 years recording the electrical activity of nerve cells trying to understand how chronic pain and memories are formed. Her role is now to bring together researchers to create a vibrant neuroscience community in Edinburgh. As part of these activities, in 2010 she coordinated a series of debates looking at the use of brain imaging technology (and fMRI in particular) outside the medical and research arenas.
