The role of disorganised speech in psychosis

Incoherent speech has emerged as a potential predictor of psychosis. Predicting psychosis risk from speech data could markedly improve healthcare for psychosis. In this talk, I will review existing tools for predicting psychosis risk from speech …

GABA in primary motor cortex and cerebellum underpins adaptation and retention

M1 GABA and M1-Cerebellar connectivity changes in human motor adaptation

M1 GABA relates to functional connectivity changes and retention in visuomotor adaptation: A 7T MRS study

At the NCM Meeting 2021 I presented results from our ultra-high field MR study of GABA in the primary motor cortex (M1). My presentation was supported by a scholarship from the NCM Society.

Linking neurochemistry, functional connectivity and behaviour in human motor adaptation

GABA and human motor adaptation

At the Dartmouth fMRI Brownbag Series, I was invited to present my PhD work, in which I used multimodal imaging to elucidate the role of GABA in human motor adaptation.

Peer-reviewed talk at Advances in Motor Learning & Motor Control 2020

M1 GABA relates to functional connectivity changes and retention in visuomotor adaptation

The role of M1 GABA in retention

Interacting with our ever-changing physical environment requires continual recalibration of the motor system. One mechanism by which this occurs is motor adaptation. Understanding how motor adaptation is implemented by the human brain, how different …

Linking M1 GABA to functional connectivity changes and retention in visuomotor adaptation

Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy as a tool for in vivo, non-invasive quantification of metabolite concentration levels in the brain
