Portrait of Dr Andrew Martin

Dr Andrew Martin

Lecturer in Cognitive Neuropsychology


Andrew employs a translational neuroscience and experimental psychology approach to study social cognition and executive functioning. In his research to date, he has employed cognitive testing, functional and structural neuroimaging, genetic endophenotyping, interoceptive analyses, and non-invasive brain stimulation methods and has contributed research across a range of fields.
A strong focus of his clinical research is trying to understand psychosis-related conditions in terms of underlying cognition with the goal of improving existing and novel treatment options. He is also interested in how cognition changes across the healthy lifespan and in disorders of ageing.
