I am investigating the effects of physical fatigue on spatial attention. Past research has shown that mental fatigue results in a rightward shift in spatial attention.

I am examining associations between cerebrovascular function and cognitive performance in people with Parkinson’s disease.

Supervisor: Dr Hannah Keage in collaboration with Dr Lyndsey Collins-Praino (University of Adelaide).
