Dr Corinne Bareham
My research to date investigates the neural correlates of spatial attention in healthy people and spatial bias in stroke patients with unilateral neglect. I primarily use EEG techniques to investigate the transition in consciousness between wakeful and healthy sleep onset and associated changes in spatial attention. I have also implemented rTMS, tDCS and fMRI to further understand the mechanisms underlying shifts in spatial attention in both healthy and stroke populations. Also, I have recently begun working on a project investigating the feasibility of using EEG as a clinical tool for prolonged disorder of consciousness patients. Using graph theory metrics, changes in functional connectivity and associated signatures of conscious awareness can be monitored in patients who behaviourally present with low awareness.
