Dr Kristin Flegal

Position: SINAPSE Lead Scientist

Interests: My background is in Psychology, with a concentration in Cognitive Neuroscience, and I am interested in neuroimaging research integrating basic science with clinical and translational applications. My current research uses behavioural and fMRI methods to investigate the mechanisms of cognitive training and transfer, and associated changes in patterns of brain activity. By studying the mediators of neural plasticity and identifying brain-based principles for the transfer of training, I hope to contribute to the development of interventions targeting cognitive deficits in populations ranging from brain injury to psychiatric disorders to normal ageing.
