Personal profile


One major strategy is to study people that have developed deficits in these abilities following brain damage. I also have a long-standing interest in unilateral neglect and its rehabilitation. These neuropsychological investigations are complemented by research into the control of simple goal-directed actions in neurologically normal people.

Research Interests

Visual perception, visual attention and visually-guided action in brain-damaged and healthy humans. Rehabilitation of visual disorders and motor function following brain damage. Constructional abilities in development, dementia and brain damage. Voluntary and involuntary mirror-writing in children and adults. Efficacy of coloured filters to treat reading problems in school-age children.
