Research Interests

To survive we have to rapidly identify and select relevant the information from the world to guide behaviour. This requires the encoding of relevant sensory information into memory and its use to control the body. My research attempts to understand the cognitive and neurological bases of these processes using behavioural experiments, neuroimaging and examination of the effects of neurological disease (esp. Parkinsons Disease and Stroke). Current projects include examinations of motor sequence learning, the role of neural oscillations in coding cognition, and early cognitive deficits in Parkinsons.
