Our research relates to understanding impairment and rehabilitation in attentional and executive function. Our work with stroke patients mainly focuses on spatial neglect and its relationship to executive/frontal impairment. Our work with patients with focal frontal or traumatic brain injuries focuses on executive impairment, planning/prospective memory failure etc and is again addressed both at improving our understanding of the basis of these difficulties and their remediation. We have also undertaken some research on children's attention and spatial function.
