Research:  My lab investigates cellular and physiological mechanisms used by autonomic systems; cardiovascular, respiratory and glucoregulatory. Physiological reflexes (e.g. baroreflex, chemoreflex, glucose counterregulation) function to maintain homeostasis in the healthy state. They are integrated by neuronal circuits in the brain, and their long term and short term patency is continually...

My research investigates aspects of social cognition, such as emotion recognition, face processing and empathy. My work combines novel experimental techniques, neurophysiological assessment and advanced neuroimaging techniques (MRI, MEG) in healthy older adults and patient groups to determine how these complex abilities are compromised by damage to different brain regions. The main clinical...

Dr. Trevor Lewis is a senior lecturer in Physiology within the School of Medical Sciences. He teaches across the science, medical science and medicine programs in physiology and neuroscience. His research explores the relationship between structure and function in ligand-gated ion channels and more broadly the processes underlying cellular excitability. This is investigated with the application...
