I am interested in the consequences of brain damage on specific cognitive functions (cognitive neuropsychology) – in particular, disorders of reading (dyslexia), speech production (aphasia), memory (amnesia) and face processing (prosopagnosia). In each case the work seeks to better illuminate the processing components of these specific functions in the normal population.
