Personal profile

Research interests

I lead the ReMemBr group (Research into Memory, Brain sciences and dementia) comprising neurologists, psychologists and researchers. My main research interest within the group is the effect of neurological disease on cognitive functions, such as decision-making and memory, and the potential for cognitive enhancement in patients as well as early diagnosis and clinical trials in dementia. Current research themes include the role of dopamine in memory consolidation, the effect of subthalamic nucleus stimulation on decision making and the effect of caffeine on attention in people with and without dementia.

Translational research is a focus of the ReMemBr group. We see and treat patients with dementia and also offer research opportunities to people with and without dementia including clinical trials of dementia treatment. Collaboration with Professor Risto Kauppinen in CRICBristol is pivotal in developing neuroimaging as a biomarker for dementia diagnosis and monitoring.

I am also involved in writing a Cochrane diagnostic test accuracy review and am co-lead director of the Dementia Health Integration Team (http://www.bristolhealthpartners.org.uk/health-integration-teams/dementia-hit/).
