Biography

Dr Price graduated from the University of Glasgow with an MA(Hons) in Psychology, an MSc in Psycholinguistic Research methods and a PhD in written language comprehension in healthy Ageing. She gained post-doctoral experience at both University of Strathclyde and the University of Glasgow, investigating the neural and cognitive mechanisms that are affected in early stages of Alzheimer's disease, using dense array EEG/ERP techniques, before working at the University of Birmingham. Her current research interests include: psycholinguistics, bilingualism/multilingualism, executive function, recognition memory, food choice, food preferences, neurodegenerative diseases and EEG/ERP studies of cognitive function in younger and older adults.
