Claire Lancaster

Lecturer, Dementia, University of Sussex

I am an Alzheimer's Society Research Fellow investigating the relationship between cognition and brain activity in individuals predisposed to future Alzheimer's Disease. My research uses a combination of behavioural assessment, MRI neuroimaging, pharmacology and cohort analyses. In addition, I work on the Alzheimer's Society GameChanger study and Alzheimer's Research UK Early Detection of Neurodegenerative Disease project - both of which explore the value of remote, digital assessment for the detection of preclinical dementia.

I have a background in Experimental Psychology, completing my PhD at the University of Sussex before moving to the University of Oxford to work on the ‘digital biomarkers for preclinical dementia’ project. As part of this work, I designed and validated smartphone-based cognitive tasks, targeted at the earliest stages of Alzheimer’s Disease.
