Dr. Leung is interested in the scientific basis of cognitive rehabilitation. The long-term goal of her research is to understand the neural mechanisms underlying cognitive recovery and investigate treatment strategies for improving cognitive functions such as memory, attention and executive function, as well as occupational performance for occupational therapy practice. She uses multiple research methods including behavioral and neuropsychological tests, functional magnetic resonance imaging, and event-related potential. Her research participants include healthy adults and special population such as people with stroke, traumatic brain injury, and fetal alcohol spectrum disorder.
