I support research across a range of projects in working memory and executive function. Current projects include participating in the development of cognitive assessments to identify the origins of developmental disorders of working memory; delivering a working memory training program to children with a range of cognitive developmental disorders and assessing its impact; assisting in developing tasks to promote the transfer of training gains and to identify the critical ingredients for working memory training; and testing adults in an on-going study of cardiovascular dysfunction and executive function.
