Current Research and Interests
Researcher. I am interested in the neuropsychology of language processing. Until recently, my research has focused on exploring the contribution of phonology and semantics during past tense processing using a combination of methods such as repetitive TMS, functional neuroimaging, MEG and neuropsychological investigations of stroke aphasic speakers. I have now begun work on exploring the neural underpinnings of anomia (word finding difficulties) in stroke aphasic speakers with a view to determine why some patients recover better than others and how treatment might be more effective.
