Dr Clare Tweedy

Research interests

My PhD explored hippocampal network dysfunction in models of alpha-synucleinopathy using electrophysiological and histochemical techniques, and I am now employed as a postdoctoral Research Fellow in Neuroscience (BBSRC funded) working with Dr Steven Clapcote and Dr Jamie Johnston. I am interested in changes in cognition and brain function during ageing, and the exploration of novel cognitive enhancers.
