Personal profile

My research will investigate the neural underpinnings and brain areas involved in Verbal Serial Short-Term Memory. Studies will focus on reconceptualising, in perceptual-motor terms, phenomena that have typically been seen as indicative of a dedicated phonological short-term store. In using fMRI techniques I will explore the involvement of the prefrontal and premotor cortices along with areas in the cerebellum.
