Research Summary
Our current areas of research interest are

1. Role of the basal ganglia in motor control, cognition and motivation and the modulatory influence of dopamine investigated through study of patients with disorders of the basal ganglia and the effect of subortical surgery.

2. Modulation of movement speed by attention and motivation in health and disease

3. Impact of movement disorders such as Parkinsons disease and dystonia on the psychosocial functioning and quality of life of the patients and their carers and more recently the effect of chronic neurological illness of a parent on their children.

We adopt a multi-technique approach and use neuropsychology, functional imaging, electrophysiological recording, and TMS in our research.
