I have authored over 180 papers, seven of which have been cited over 100 times. My h-index is 37 (ISI), with approximately 3800 unique career citations (ISI). These publications include a series of detailed neuropsychological and neuroimaging investigations of the breakdown of human memory systems in temporal lobe epilepsy. This work has been described as a "paradigm shift" by the epilepsy group at the Institute of Neurology UCL, Queen Square, London (Baxendale S, Thompson P. Beyond localization: The role of traditional neuropsychological tests in an age of imaging. Epilepsia 2010; 51:2225-30). This work has had a significant translational impact on our work on the early detection of AD dementia, which was published predominantly between 2013 and 2018.
