Who are we?
The Clinical and Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory (also known as the Stout Lab) forms part of the Monash Institute of Cognitive and Clinical Neurosciences, in the School of Psychological Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences at Monash University.
What are our aims?
To link state-of-the-art research methods to clinical problems in ways that will help to understand heterogeneity among people with various disorders, and also in ways that have clear potential for affecting treatments.
What do we do?
We are known for the development and implementation of strategies and tools for sensitive measurement of cognitive function to aid in the understanding and treatment of Huntington's Disease. We are also known for work on cognitive models of decision making and their applications to clinical populations, especially drug use problems. The main approaches we use include computerized cognitive, clinical neuropsychological, and neuropsychiatric assessment, along with mathematical modelling and neuroimaging (MRI, EEG).
