David's main research seeks to understand how the human vestibular system shapes cognition and mental well-being. His group is particularly interested in developing and trialling non-invasive methods of vestibular stimulation to help overcome neuro-disability associated with brain injury and neuro-degeneration.
Most of this research is conducted with the close support of clinical and commercial collaborators. In allied work, David's group seeks to understand more about how vestibular injury and disease compromises cognitive and emotional function. In all cases, the work is motivated by the fundamental aim of translating theoretical knowledge of vestibular cognition into clinically-relevant applications.
