Our interdisciplinary research aims to answer cognitive neuroscience questions by identifying patterns in the complex interactions between brain regions at rest or during goal directed behaviour. This includes work on network adaptive behaviours (reorganisation/plasticity) triggered by abrupt (e.g. trauma, stroke) or gradual structural changes (e.g. neuropsychiatric/neurodegenerative diseases, ageing) or pharmacological agents.
