Biography

Andy Lee is interested in memory loss or amnesia, a common and debilitating syndrome that can occur after traumatic head injury, viral illness, alcoholism, or as a result of dementia such as Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). A major goal of his research is to understand the mechanisms by which memories are formed, stored and retrieved in the human brain and how these memory processes can be disrupted following brain damage. His research uses neuroimaging (e.g. functional MRI, diffusion-weighted imaging), patient neuropsychology (e.g. patients with static brain lesions, or progressive dementia) and eye-tracking to address a number of theoretical issues.

Research Interests

Cognitive neuroscience of memory and perception using neuroimaging, neuropsychological testing and eye-tracking. Understanding the neural correlates of memory, and how these processes are disrupted in amnesia following brain damage
