Personal profile

Research interests

I study human memory (episodic and semantic) using the complementary approaches of neuroimaging (MRI, fMRI), magneto- and electroencephalography (MEG, EEG), and cognitive neuropsychological studies of impaired memory due to neurological disorders or dementia. I'm also interested in how changes in the ageing brain relate to changes in cognition over the adult lifespan, and how neuroimaging and statistical methods can be optimised to investigate these issues.

I'm Director of the EEG Lab in Zochonis Building, which supports grant-funded work, PhD student research, and master's and undergraduate projects. 

I'm Principal Investigator of the Multimodal Neuroimaging and Memory Lab (MNML). For volunteer participation opportunities, contact mnml.participation@manchester.ac.uk
