Our research focuses on the rehabilitation of acquired language and cognitive impairments, in individuals who have had a stroke and those with dementia. We specialise in developing novel digital interventions (i.e. apps and web-based therapies) for hemianopic alexia, aphasia and other neurological conditions.
We are passionate about involving end users in the co-design of our therapy apps and at all stages of our research.
We are also interested in the potential application of non-invasive brain stimulation (e.g. tDCS) in enhancing therapy effects, and improving language recovery.
We use a range of neuroimaging techniques (including MRI, fMRI and MEG) to further our understanding of the language network, identify how the brain changes in response to rehabilitation (neuroplasticity) and to explain and predict individual differences in recovery.
