Jeannie joined the School of Psychology at UCLan in 2004 after completing my PhD in developmental dyslexia. Her PhD focused on individual differences in dyslexia and the role that visual attention, eye movements and phonological processing played in adult dyslexia. Jeannie is interested in individual differences in visual selective attention and how this relates to other aspects of performance including reading and inhibitory control.

Jeannie is research active within the area of psychology and is a member of the Cognitive Research Group.

Research Activities

Jeannie’s research interests focus on cognitive and neuropsychological aspects of behaviour. These include issues related to laterality and hemispheric differences/interactions, along with interests in literacy skills, working memory and inhibitory control. Jeannie has been focusing on exploring individual differences in cognition through a series of studies examining visual selective attention and she has a particular interest in literacy skills and developmental dyslexia.
