Lovely to work with Masashi Hamada again reviewing variability of neurophysiological plasticity paradigms in health and dystonia.  An article for the special edition of Experimental Brain Research to celebrate Professor John Rothwell.

April 2020

Outcomes from novel DBS approaches in cervical dystonia with Francesca Morgante and Erlick Perreira look excellent using wireless EMG and motion capture technology.

Feb 2020

Scientific commentary by Jon Stone in Brain which provides historical context and summarises key features of our study looking at decision making in functional movement disorders.

 

Dec 2019

New paper modelling decision making in patients with functional movement disorders in which we identify abnormalities in information accumulation.  A collaboration with Corinna Daum and Sanjay Manohar.  Are low drift rates a biosubstrate for the  broader cognitive profile experienced by patients with functional disorders?

 

Sep 2019

Public understanding of neurology grant  awarded by Guarantors of Brain!  ‘The Neurology and Neuroscience of Expert Musical Performance’ will be a collaboration with Katja Kornysheva and Maria Herrojo-Ruiz in which a variety of medium are used to increase public accessibility to the neuroscience behind musical performance.  Looking forward to working with Health Creatives in 2020.

Baby Nicolás has arrived safely and will be on maternity leave for six months!

 

Mar 2019

What are the mechanisms behind the ordinal structure of skilled sequential action?  New paper led by Katja Kornysheva examining the neural markers of competitive queuing published in Neuron.

 

 

 

 

 

Jan 2019

New paper with Jaume Rosset i Llobet which discusses how a motor control framework can directly inform successful rehabilitation techniques for task-specific dystonia.  

Dec 2018

Grant awarded by St George's University of London! Looking forward to working with Francesca Morgante to characterise  deep brain stimulation response in dystonia with wireless EMG 

 

Nov 2018

What's in a Name? Conundrums Common to the Task-Specific Disorders. Editorial with Katja Kornysheva for Movement Disorders in Clinical Practice.  

 

Sep 2018 

New paper with Joe Galea and Movement Disorders Group at University College London examining cerebellar mechanisms in DYT11 myoclonus dystonia.  Movement Disorders.

Jul 2018 

Wonderful to have Scott Albert from Reza Shadmehr's lab visit to develop new experimental paradigms in generalised dystonia.  ​

Jul 2018 

New paper with Panagiotis Kassavetis examining surround inhibition in dystonia.  Conceptually surround inhibition is a beautiful mechanism for task-specific dystonia but this critical reappraisal of the neurophysiological evidence forces a reevaluation of this hypothesis.

 

May 2018 

How can motor neuroscience keep our musicians healthy? Thank you to the  Healthy Conservertoires meeting for inviting me to talk and opening the discussion... 

 

Feb 2018

New paper with Joe Galea exploring variability and motor learning in DYT-1 dystonia published in Nature Scientific Reports

Jan 2018

Great to visit impressive @GaleaLab to plan future experimental collaborations

Dec 2017

Paper accepted with Katja Kornysheva: "A unifying motor control framework for task-specific dystonia" Nature Reviews in Neurology

Nov 2017

Wonderful to visit the Institute of Music Physiology and Musicians' Medicine in Hannover.  Incredible clinical service and lab.  Thank you to Professor Eckart Altenmuller,  Dr Christos Ioannou and the other members of the lab for their hospitality.

 

Nov 2017

Talk at the Basal Ganglia Club, National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.  Thank you to Professor Kailash Bhatia for the invitation.  

Nov 2017

Project grant awarded by the Royal Society project grant for a motion capture device to continue work examining kinematic features of movement disorders

 

Nov 2017

Invited talk at the University of Bangor Psychology Seminars.  Fantastic to see the impressive Kornysheva Skilled Action Memory Lab in Bangor.  

Nov 2017

Great to discuss 'A motor control framework for task-specific dystonia' with new colleagues at St George's University of London after my talk at the Neuroscience Seminar Series.

Aug 2017

Start a Chadburn Clinical Lectureship at St George's University of London
