Bio: I am Professor of Cognitive Neurology at the Institute of Neurology and an Honorary Consultant Neurologist at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.

My main clinical and academic interest is in cognitive rehabilitation, especially in the field of acquired language disorders. I am developing mechanistic accounts of how cognitive disorders can be improved by different types of therapy, both pharmacological and behavioural, using functional and structural brain imaging. I have developed three web-based rehabilitation tools that can be used to by therapists and patients with hemianopia, and am working on four other electronic therapy projects sponsored by the MRC, NIHR and The Stroke Association.
