Research Theme

Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience

Interests

My research focuses on the frontotemporal dementia spectrum and related diseases, with emphasis on the associated cognitive and behavioural changes and underlying neurobiology. In particular, I am interested in the complex relationship between apathy and impulsivity, both of which are common and cause substantial patient morbidity and carer distress. Improved subjective and objective tests that can accurately assess these multifaceted constructs are highly warranted, and will guide future research and drug development in this field.
