Personal profile

Biography

Joanne is a Research Fellow in the Department of Neuroscience, Central Clinical School.

Her research entails an investigation of the ocular motor system as a means of developing an understanding of neurocognitive processes fundamental to normal human behaviour, and how these processes may be, or become, dysfunctional. This work combines a range of sophisticated approaches (ocular motor, neuropsychological and neuroimaging), and primarily explores (dys) function in human lesion and system disorders. Establishing the clinical utility of ocular motor measures is a primary goal of the research, translating research outcomes into clinical practice.

This entails developing and applying methods that can:

- sensitively measure disease severity and evolution

- evaluate the efficacy of treatment

- advance our understanding of the neurobiological bases of phenotypically similar conditions.
