The Neuropsychology section is devoted to theoretical, experimental and applied contributions that advance the understanding of cognitive and behavioural impairments in neurological conditions (e.g., stroke, traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer’s disease, brain tumours), their recovery and rehabilitation. The contents include theoretical and systematic reviews, single-case studies, case reports, experimental and clinical neuropsychological studies, cognitive rehabilitation trials, studies of neuropsychological diagnostic measures, studies of new methods for early identification of disease and basic research about the neuropsychological mechanics of functional recovery.
Meet the Section Editor
Stephanie Rossit, Neuropsychology
I am a Lecturer in Psychology at the University of East Anglia (UEA). I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Glasgow investigating stroke patients who suffered from spatial neglect. After my Ph.D. I undertook a post-doctoral research position at the Brain and Mind Institute at the Western University (Canada). I am an executive committee member of the British Neuropsychological Society and the Local lead (at UEA) for the UK Reproducibility Network (UKRN). The overarching goal of my research program is to: 1) investigate how the brain supports perception, action and attention; 2) investigate how these processes are affected by aging and brain disease; and 3) develop and test novel ‘complex interventions’ for cognitive rehabilitation. I lead the Neuropsychology Laboratory (Neurolab) bridging the gap between neuroscience and clinical practise and working with various clinical populations (stroke survivors, traumatic brain injury survivors, dementia and cognitive impairment), their carers and clinicians.
