My research broadly investigates the coupling of oculomotor (eye) movements and spatial attention in healthy individuals and stroke patients presenting with Spatial Neglect. Spatial Neglect is a condition that arises from lesions to the right hemisphere of the brain, and manifests as an inability to attend to the left hand side of extrapersonal space. I am using behavioural and fMRI research to investigate whether shifts in perceived proprioceptive feedback from eye movements can lead to shifts in spatial attention and therefore symptoms of Spatial Neglect.

My supervisors are Prof Julie Harris and Dr Justin Ales
