Dr. Roberts is a Lecturer in Psychology who specialises in Cognitive Neuroscience.
Dr. Roberts research is focussed on normal and disordered visual and language processing (e.g., word, object, and face recognition) using a variety of methods and techniques including neuropsychological investigations of brain-damaged patients, awake craniotomy, neuroimaging, and visual psychophysics. By adopting this convergent approach his research aims to advance our understanding of (1) the patterns of impairment following brain damage; (2) normal cognitive processes (e.g., healthy ageing); (3) how this knowledge can be used to translate evidence-based research into clinical practice (e.g., new diagnostic tools, interventions).
