My research focuses upon the development of novel approaches to the amelioration of age-related cognitive and behavioural dysfunction. In this context, a pivotal role is ascribed to methods and applications that optimise the utilisation of adaptive brain plasticity. Much of my current clinical and pre-clinical research has a specific emphasis upon the neuro-rehabilitation of stroke survivors. I am involved in the development and clinical evaluation of a number of novel, targeted non-pharmacological rehabilitation interventions. Another current area of enquiry is the scientific basis of interventions that may be used harness brain plasticity during periods of limb immobilisation, with the aim of maintaining functional capacity in older persons who have sustained injuries as a result of a fall.
