Research Summary

My research focus is clinical cognitive neuroscience and neuroplasticity. I am interested in understanding how cognitive function can be preserved and recovered following the onset of neurodegeneration and dementia. The aim is not only to understand the factors that support successful adaptation, but also develop novel, non-invasive interventions, such as cognitive training, that will enhance such mechanisms and improve cognitive function in dementia. Because they are low-risk, such interventions can be used in synergy with other more invasive therapies to promote more effective treatment. I currently work with patients with Huntington's disease, the commonest genetic dementia, to identify the environmental factors that contribute to successful adaptation in the brain and test novel interventions that could slow cognitive impairment.
