I am Director of the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging (WIN). Established in 2017, WIN is a multi-disciplinary neuroimaging research facility. WIN aims to bridge the gap between laboratory neuroscience and human health, by performing multi-scale studies spanning from animal models through to human populations.
Within WIN, I head the Plasticity Group at FMRIB. Our research focuses on how the brain changes with learning, experience, and damage. As well as shedding light on how the healthy brain responds to change, our work also has implications for understanding and treating disease. For example, we are testing new methods for rehabilitation after stroke and we are assessing whether taking up exercise could slow the effects of age on the brain.
