Cognitive Neuropsychology of Attention

As part of the Marie Curie Initial Training Network: INDIREA (Individualised Diagnostics & Rehabilitation of Attention Disorders), the focus of my DPhil is developing behavioural assessment tools for mild attentional deficits following a stroke.  I am working under the supervision of Prof. Kia Nobre and Dr. Nele Demeyere (previously supervised by the late Prof. Glyn Humphreys).

My main theoretical question is how the temporal dynamics of attention, or the way in which attention "fluctuates" over time, influence patterns of performance in cognitive tasks. My research covers individuals across life-span, in different conditions: from neuro-typical children and adults, to ageing individuals and stroke survivors. I dedicate much effort for developing new cognitive paradigms that will allow the evaluation of attention among any kind of population.

In addition to my main thesis, I am interested in various fields of Cognitive Sciences: attention, language, memory, consciousness, philosophy and the relation between neuropsychology and education.
