Dr Satu Baylan

  • Neuropsychological assessment of memory, attention and executive functions in the context of brain injury and healthy ageing.
  • Cognitive rehabilitation interventions (eg Goal Management Training).
  • Functional imaging of the effects of cognitive rehabilitation interventions.
  • Treatment of mood disorders after stroke (music based interventions and positive psychotherapy).

Dr Kristin Flegal

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.

Olivia Hamilton

I am interested in the vulnerability of the ageing brain, especially changes cognitive ability and behaviour that can occur as part of 'healthy' ageing, or as a result of diseases such as stroke or dementia.

My PhD project focuses on changes in cognitive ability in cerebral small vessel disease and how this might relate to structural brain changes that occur throughout the disease course.

Currently, I am conducting a systematic review on the associations between domain specific cognitive ability and structural brain changes (visible on MRI) in sporadic small vessel disease (https://www.crd.york.ac.uk/prospero/display_record.php?RecordID=80215). I am also employing structural equation modelling techniques to investigate the relationship between visible MRI markers of sporadic small vessel disease and cognitive ability longitudinally in several large cohorts.

My research aims to better characterise the cognitive symptomatology of cerebral small vessel disease and its trajectory over the disease course; examine how this relates to underlying changes in brain structure; and to explore how we can use neuroimaging, psychological and epidemiological data to more accurately predict outcomes for people with cerebral small vessel disease.

Dr Louise Brown Nicholls

My research is focused on attention and short-term ('working') memory in younger and older adults. I have a special interest in the effects of adult ageing on visual-spatial working memory. I am an experimental psychologist and primarily use behavioural measures, however I also have an interest in EEG/ERPs.

Miss Katerina Pappa

I am interested in individuals with acquired brain injury (ABI) suffering from executive dysfunction. In my PhD, I aim to develop and test a novel intervention combining an existing rehabilitation program training compensatory mental strategies called Goal Management Training; with an adaptive, process-based computerised intervention aimed at enhancing working memory processes. I will also acquire fMRI data to investigate the underlying neural changes as a result of training.
