Jane Riddoch

Emeritus Professorial Research Fellow

My research focuses on cognitive neuropsychology; in particular, visual problems such as agnosia, optic aphasia, disorders of attention (such as neglect, extinction, and simultanagnosia), and cognitive disorders of action such as apraxia and action disorganisation syndrome. Problems such as these can be hugely disruptive to everyday life. I aim to try to understand the underlying mechanisms of these disorders so that rehabilitation can be directed more effectively. I was  involved in the development of a test battery to screen for cognitive deficits following stroke (BCoS).  Subsequently I was involved in the development of a quick screen for cognitive problems which can be used in the initial days following a stoke (OCS).
