Richard investigates where and how the human brain stores and flexibly uses our knowledge of people, objects, and words (in other words, our semantic memory). 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 use research findings to help people manage their language disabilities and social difficulties.
Richard teaches both on undergraduate and postgraduate modules, specialising in the following:
- Cognitive Neuroscience
- Cognitive Neuropsychology
- Neuromodulation (e.g., TMS, tES)
- Semantic Cognition
- Cognitive Communication Disorders
He is Module Organiser for: PPP-1005: Brain & Mind (view an Introductory video here)
