Welcome

Welcome to my homepage. The research in our neuropsychology lab is essentially concerned with disorders that arise from brain dysfunction due to structural or developmental conditions. We are interested in disorders that arise from a variety of different kinds of brain impairment including acquired brain impairment such as arising from trauma, degenerative conditions and mild cognitive impairment. We are also interested in developmental conditions such as Asperger's syndrome and psychiatric conditions.
