Dr Verity McClelland
Dr Verity McClelland is an academic Clinical Neurophysiologist with a background in Paediatrics. She is particularly interested in sensorimotor physiology, the development of motor control and understanding the mechanisms underlying movement disorders in children. She works closely with the Complex Movement Disorders Service at Evelina London Children's Hospital. Her current research uses EEG-based methods to investigate sensory processing abnormalities in children with dyskinetic cerebral palsy and asks whether neurophysiological parameters can help to improve outcomes for these children by providing a more individualised approach to therapy. Verity has also used TMS in adults and children in her clinical and research work, assessing corticospinal tract integrity in children with dystonia. She currently holds an MRC post-doctoral Clinical Research Training Fellowship at the Department of Basic and Clinical Neuroscience, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King's College London and is an honorary Consultant in Clinical Neurophysiology at Evelina London Children's Hospital and Great Ormond Street Hospital, London.
