I am a Senior Lecturer in the Computational, Cognitive and Clinical Neuroimaging Laboratory, which is part of the Department of Medicine's Division of Brain Sciences.
The overarching aim of my research is to derive a better understanding of how task active networks in the human brain support key aspects of cognition such as attention, motor response inhibition, working memory, planning and reasoning, and how these aspects of cognition are affected in the pathological brain. I apply a wide range of techniques in pursuit of this aim including functional and structural brain imaging, genotyping, machine learning and computational modelling.
I also have a particular interest in the potential applications of technologies that can be used to apply cognitive testing and training in the home. For example, Apps and websites that can assess large-scale cohorts, track clinical populations longitudinally, or deliver cognitive training regimes.
If you are a student who is interested in undertaking PhD or postdoctoral research in my lab then please feel free to email me directly at a.hampshire_at_imperial.ac.uk.
