I am a Cognitive Neuroscientist with a focus on cognitive ageing. My general research interests are concerned with the mind/body relationship. Research projects I am involved in include understanding the organisation of the hearing brain and changes in ageing that impact on auditory fidelity, identifying the neural signature of mindfulness practice, selective attention and ageing, working memory and ageing. I graduated MSc and PhD from the University of Auckland (Physiology).
With my colleague, Dr Daniel Shepherd, I co-direct The Psychophysiology Laboratory. The lab is equipped with a 64 channel Neuroscan system for EEG/ERP studies, portable recording systems for measuring autonomic responses, and test material for neuropsychological assessment.
