About us

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.

Projects

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
