Personal statement

Madeleine joined Strathclyde in 2000 having previously worked at the University of Glasgow, the University of Edinburgh and the MRC Human Movement and Balance Unit in London. She is a Chartered Psychologist and an HCPC registered Sport and Exercise Psychologist. Her research focuses on developing and evaluating rehabilitation programmes for stroke survivors, and she is also interested in how perceptuo-motor control changes with age.

Research interests

Stroke rehabilitation. Developing and evaluating low-cost rehabilitation interventions for adults who have survived a stroke. These interventions are aimed at improving upper limb function, physical activity levels and cognitive abilities. 

Ageing.  Age-related changes in perceptuo-motor control and the extent to which perceived movement abilities change the activities older adults engage in.  

Modelling the timing of body movements.  Developing and testing the tau-guide model of the timing of motor actions. Exploring the extent to which the temporal control of movement is similar to other forms of timing such as the perception of a time interval.
