Research Themes

Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience

Clinical and Veterinary Neuroscience

Interests

Research programmes:

1. Semantic cognition and its disorders

2. Aphasia

3. Recovery, rehabilitation and neuroplasticity

Our research makes parallel use of multiple methodologies in an attempt to secure convergent insights on the given research topic. These include: neuropsychology, computational models (models that can mimic neural organisation in their construction but also produce target behaviours), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), structural and functional neuroimaging, and cortical grid-electrode studies.
