Research summary

My research looks at the neurochemical activity within attentional networks implicating cortical and subcortical brain regions. Using MR Spectroscopy (MRS), structural neuroimaging and neuropsychological testing, I am investigating the activity of neurotransmitters GABA and choline and their role in cognitive and attentional impairment in dementia with Lewy bodies.
