Personal profile

Research Interests

Madison is primarily interested in neurocognitive mechanisms of attention, executive function, and adolescent development. Additionally, she is interested in how motor learning and control principles can be utilised to improve executive function and during development (both typical and atypical development). More broadly, her interests extend to areas such as sleep, memory, video games and oscillatory mechanisms of memory and cognitive control.

Research Biography

Madison began her interest in research during her undergraduate degree, where she completed her Honours at the University of South Australia in 2020. Her Honours project focussed on exploring how individual differences in oscillatory EEG (such as Individual Alpha Frequency) influence mechanisms of memory consolidation during sleep. Her primary interest was in mechanisms of rule learning and how individual information processing capabilities can influence learning mechanisms.

Following this, Madison broadened her interests into mechanisms of motor learning and executive function, beginning a PhD at Flinders University. She is the recipient of an Australian Government Research Training Scholarship within the College of Nursing and Health Sciences. Her PhD aims to co-design a video-game based intervention for adolescents with ADHD that utilises the link between motor and cognition to train executive function.
