Research Interests

Wendy is interested in how disturbances in sensory processing interact with abnormalities in cognitive and emotional processes in psychotic and affective disorders. She uses a wide range of ERP components (e.g. MMN, P300, ASSR) in her research and is highly interested in EEG/ERP data processing and analysis.
