Research summary

My primary research interests lie in understanding how the brain changes as we age. My PhD research uses electroencephalography (EEG) to examine early sensory processing and attention in healthy older adults and dementia patients. Using a combination of uni and multimodal mismatch negativity paradigms the aim is to better understand the changes that occur in healthy ageing and use that knowledge to help better examine and characterise the equivalent processes in individuals with mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia and Lewy Body dementia.
