The Cognitive Clinical Neuroscience Research Group is a cross-departmental group which explores a range of theoretical and clinical questions from a multidisciplinary perspective. Our research examines fundamental perceptual and cognitive processes, such as memory, executive function, language learning, visual awareness, and multi-sensory perception.
We employ a range of experimental techniques to examine these questions, including EEG, fMRI, TMS, and neuropsychological testing. We have a particular interest in noninvasive brain stimulation, and carry out methodological work aiming to enhance its specificity. We carry out research across the life-span, in both healthy and clinical populations.
Our work is funded by the European Research Council.
The Cognitive Clinical Neuroscience Research Group are currently undertaking research in the following areas:
- Visual cortex markers of preattentive processing
- Eye-tracking in infancy
- Dissociating mental imagery, working memory and conscious perception
- Neuropsychology in traumatic brain injury
- Spatial disorientation and cognitive performance
- Using SenseCam to enhance consolidation and retrieval of memory in an encephalitis patient with severe retrograde amnesia
