Leigh is a Reader in Psychology using a cognitive neuroscience approach to examine ageing, mind wandering and creative imagination. He obtained his PhD in 2001 from Bristol University (executive functioning in old age) before moving on to Stirling to undertake a post-doctoral position investigating episodic memory using EEG and fMRI methodology. Leigh also held a lectureship at Glasgow Caledonian University.
Leigh’s other interests include 1) nutrition and mental performance (http://tinyurl.com/d6ua6yt), 2) diabetes, 3) memory retrieval processes, 4) brain imaging techniques, 5) typical/atypical development & 6) music and cognition.
