My work focuses on the underlying biology of cognitive ageing and dementia. In the UniSA Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory, we are investigating cerebrovascular contributions to cognitive ageing, and neural mechanisms that enable some individuals to compensate for age-related structural brain changes (the concept of Cognitive Reserve). I also work within a large European collaboration (Epidemiological CLInicoPathological Studies in Europe) linking cognition and clinical symptomatology in late life with neuropathological data. This follows on from my post-doctoral work in the cognitive epidemiology of late-life dementia (University of Cambridge, 2007-11) and my PhD work on cognition and brain activity (EEG) in childhood (Flinders University, 2004-8).
