I am Chair of the Methods Group at the Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging at UCL. In particular, I develop Dynamic Causal Modelling (DCM), a framework for investigating the function and circuitry of the human brain. I use this and other statistical methods to investigate how the brain changes due to ageing and neurological disorders.
I am a developer of SPM, the open source software package for analysing neuroimaging data. My focus is on Bayesian analysis methods, including DCM - a technology which lets people investigate brain circuitry.
My neurobiological interest is how the brain constructs a model of the world and how this changes as we age. In particular, I am interested in the functional anatomy of the hippocampus - a brain structure critical for memory and imagination, which declines early in the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
