The interdisciplinary research in my lab combines cognitive models with multi-modal imaging to understand the neurobiological substrate for language functions, and the extent to which they are adaptive and capable of reorganisation following either brain damage or the normal brain changes that occur with healthy aging. We also study object processing in the ventral stream, using fMRI and MEG together with DNN models to construct a cognitively- motivated neurobiological account of how visual inputs become meaningful objects over time. I am also PI on the Cambridge Centre for Ageing and Neuroscience project (CamCan; http://www.cam-can.org/). CamCan is a University-wide consortium, funded by the BBSRC, to study ?The Resilient Brain? - how age-related changes in brain structure and function relate to patterns of preserved and declining cognitive functions with age.
