Research summary

I use brain imaging to find out answers to interesting questions. I have a particular interest in memory, dementia, epilepsy and Parkinson's Disease. Currently I work on some exciting projects using magnetic resonance imaging of the hippocampus, diffusion tensor imaging of white matter, electroencephalography of sleep, and soon some intracranial recordings of humans too.

Funded jointly by the Medical Research Council and BRACE.
