Professor David Donaldson

David is a Cognitive Neuroscientist, primarily interested in understanding human episodic memory - asking quesitons such as 'why does memory decline with age?', 'why is it so easy to recognise familiar faces, but so difficult to recognise unfamiliar faces?' and 'when I leave work, why can’t I recall where I parked my car that day?'


David was the SINAPSE lead PI at the University of Stirling, but moved to the University of St Andrews on 1st January 2020, becoming a Professor in the School of Psychology and Neuroscience. David plans to continue being involved with SINAPSE, through links at St Andrews. He also plans to set up a mobile EEG laboratory, using brain imaging equipment to examine human behaviour during real-world activity. As well as taking the study of memory outside of the lab, he also aims to extend the range of topics that EEG is used for, including spatial navigation and attention, and applied issues such as understanding sporting behaviour.

 

David is looking for exciting new collaborations - he remains curious and interested in how brain imaging can help inform psychological models of the mind, and he is keen to learn new techniques, paradigms and approaches.

Dr Paul Hoffman

My research is concerned with the processes of semantic cognition – i.e., the ways in which we (a) maintain a store of conceptual knowledge about objects, words and people and (b) use executive control processes to access this information in a flexible, task-appropriate manner. I explore this using a variety of techniques, including:

  • Case-series neuropsychological investigations, primarily of patients with semantic dementia and semantic deficits following stroke
  • Computational linguistic analyses (e.g., latent semantic analysis)
  • Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation in healthy subjects
  • Functional neuroimaging studies
  • Connectionist computational models

Dr William McGeown

My research is mainly focused on investigating the cognitive and neural correlates of a range of neuropsychiatric symptoms (e.g., delusions, sleep disorder, depression, apathy).

I am interested in improving the diagnosis/detection of Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia (especially in the earliest stages) through customised assessment methods or through the use of multivariate markers.  Variants of these markers could also be used to stratify patients or as outcome measures for clinical drug trials.  Relatedly, I have interests in developing methods to speed drug development.

I have projects underway to develop serum blood-based biomarkers for the dementias (in combination with other methods), to investigate the diagnostic utility of customised neuropsychological tests (and analysis methods), and in the near future hope to begin a project that will utilise electrophysiological methods.

I have an additional research line that focuses on understanding the neural bases of hypnosis and suggestibility. By targeting individual differences suggestion can be used to study elements of psychosis, changes in agency, and other interesting psychological and behavioural phenomena.

Within my research I use structural magnetic resonance imaging techniques (voxel-based morphometry and cortical thickness assessment), functional magnetic resonance imaging (brain activity and connectivity analyses), electrophysiological methods, and neuropsychological assessment.
