Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience


Leff Lab

We work with people who have suffered a form of acquired brain injury (e.g. due to stroke, head injury or a brain tumour), or a degenerative brain disorder (e.g. dementia), that affects their thinking, language or visual processing skills. We develop novel behavioural interventions and measure their clinical effectiveness. We are also interested in brain states (measured using brain imaging techniques), and how these both influence peoples’ responses to therapy, and be changed by the therapy itself.
