Academic interests

Broadly speaking my research has focused on the psychological constructs memory, perception and attention, and the ways in which biological manipulations affect these constructs. I have conducted research in transgenic models of Alzheimer's disease and schizophrenia, using touchscreen operant chambers for rodents combined with in vivo experimental manipulations (such as virus-mediated genetic control of specific neuronal populations). Currently I am studying the role of perineuronal nets in behaviour relevant to schizophrenia.
