Research

Richard investigates where and how the human brain stores and flexibly uses our knowledge of people, objects, and words. To do so, he employs a multi-method approach that includes behavioural measures (e.g., accuracy and reaction times), brain imaging and non-invasive brain stimulation.  Further, his research seeks to advance our understanding of language and behavioural impairments that result from brain injury and dementia, and develop new tools for diagnostics and behavioural interventions.
