Research interests

My research covers the areas of occupational health, human aging, cognitive psychology, functional change and the moderating impact of individual differences.

My occupational research concerns the acquired cognitive changes that accompany an individual's exposure to suspected neurotoxins (e.g., lead, aluminium, organic solvents, pesticides) while my aging research covers the changes associated with normal human aging. This includes cognitive training of the elderly where the main emphasis is on the rates of learning, asymptotes of learning, transfer of training and rates of forgetting of cognitive skills. My current research concerns the role of glucose in the promotion of efficient cognitive function, especially within the area of memory.

Other applied work undertaken examined metacognitive changes in relation to stress and aging in working populations, post-operative cognitive recovery from anaesthesia and malingering in relation to neurotoxic deficits.
