I am conducting a long-term MRI follow up study of paediatric epilepsy surgery patients from Great Ormond Street Hospital, using both structural and functional methods of network analysis. Dynamic causal modelling is a method of interrogating the effective connectivity between cortical areas, allowing inference about temporal dynamics and connection strength at a neuronal level. I'm pairing this approach with diffusion tensor imaging to reconstruct and analyse the integrity of white matter networks, to provide a comprehensive understanding of the long-term plastic changes of the language system.
I work in the Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Unit in the Institute of Child Health. My research is supported by a Child Health Research Appeal Trust studentship.
We are currently recruiting for healthy control subjects between the ages of 16-22. The study involves an MRI scan, and neuropsychological assessment. If you're interested in taking part in our research, please contact me for more information.
