Research Assistant

Shannon is an alumni of the Memory lab who graduated from Heriot-Watt University with a BSC in Psychology in the summer of 2016.

In Spring 2017 Shannon returned to the lab as a research assistant working on a project examining the suitability of immersive virtual reality (presetned via a headmounted display) as a potential tool for cognitive assessment and intervention in healthy older adults and people with Alzheimer's disease. Shannon's project is supported by a pilot project grant from Alzheimer's Research UK Scotland Network Centre awarded to Dr Michael Craig and lab leader Dr Michaela Dewar.
