My main research interests are the functional anatomy of cognitive impairment, and treatment of prodromal Alzheimer’s disease.
I am studying the potential of combined physical, social and computer activities to delay the onset of dementia. Additionally, we are studying the changes in brain oxygenation that occurs as a result of the activities, using functional near infrared spectroscopy and machine learning.
I have studied episodic memory and attention in amnestic mild cognitive impairment using fMRI, and response to acethylcholinesterase inhibitor treatment.
I am also investigating the treatment potential of near infrared spectroscopy guided neurofeedback in prodromal Alzheimer’s disease and late onset depression.
Additionally, I am collaborating with colleagues on studies of subjective memory impairment (SCI).
My research activities are a collaboration between the Institute of Psychiatry and the Research Department of Mental Health Sciences at University College London.
