Personal profile

Research interests

I joined the Department as a Lecturer in 2017. Prior to that I completed my PhD and post-doctoral research at the University of Bristol, using electroencephalography (EEG) to examine sensory and attentional processing in dementia patients and healthy older adults. My undergraduate degree was in Psychology at Swansea University.

I teach on the MSc Applied Clinical Psychology course, run the EEG laboratories and lead the Neurostim research group. I am also an Early Career Co-ordinator for Alzheimer’s Research UK.

My motivation as a researcher has always been to translate the findings of cognitive neuroscience into useful tools for clinicians and the wider world. My primary research focus is the development of a new EEG technique, known as Fast Periodic Visual Stimulation, for assessing cognitive deficits in dementia. In partnership with my collaborators I have developed a free toolbox https://gstothart.github.io/Fastball/ allowing anyone to download and conduct their own Fast Periodic Visual Stimulation experiments.

In 2015 I was nominated for the Erik Kandel Young Neuroscientist Prize by Prof. Risto Näätänen of the University of Helsinki.
