Research Theme

Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience

Interests

Using neuropsychological tests, pharmacological mapinulations, microdialysis, and imaging techniques, I investigate cognition in both patient populations and 'healthy' individuals.

I am currently interested in cognition in individuals with Parkinson's Disease, Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, Subarachnoid haemorrhage, and head injuries, as well as those who are sleep-deprived.
