Research Summary

I am currently working on Insight 46, a sub-study of the MRC National Survey of Health and Development (British 1946 Birth Cohort). This is a major longitudinal study of 500 individuals who were all born in the same week in 1946, combining intensive cognitive and clinical assessment with collection of neuroimaging, blood and genetic biomarkers. The aim of my research is to understand more about the earliest changes in cognition associated with preclinical Alzheimer's disease. I use novel computerised cognitive tests to detect subtle cognitive changes and I investigate how these changes relate to life-course factors and brain pathologies.
