Research Theme

Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience

Interests

My research focuses on the cognitive, behavioural and neurobiological changes associated with frontotemporal dementia, progressive supranuclear palsy and corticobasal syndrome. I am particularly interested in understanding the mechanisms underlying apathy and impulsivity, which frequently coexist and cause substantial patient morbidity and carer distress, but remain poorly treated. My work employs a range of clinical, neuropsychiatric and behavioural assessments, MRI brain imaging and pharmacological intervention.
