Associate Professor

School of Psychology

University of Newcastle



Dr. Hunter's research career started at the Institute of Psychiatry, London, working on models of learning, cognitive function, psychopathology and the inter-hemispheric transfer of training. During the 5 years of postgraduate and then postdoctoral research at the Institute, Dr. Hunter gained expertise in behavioural training, recovery surgery, unit recording and EEG/ERP techniques. Dr. Hunter then joined Aston University, Birmingham, and, while undertaking clinical training, collaborated with Professor G. F.A. Harding on research employing EEG and ERP experimental techniques in human subjects. Dr. Hunter moved to the School of Psychology at the University of Newcastle, N.S.W. as a lecturer in Psychology, specialising in Clinical Psychology and Psychopathology, in 1985. He has continued to use and develop EEG/ERP experimental techniques to investigate cognitive functions in normal and clinical groups. This research effort subsequently extended to the development of functional MRI neuro-imaging techniques. He is currently working on methods of using fMRI and MRS measures in an effort to identify brain chemistry changes associated with neural function. He has also continued his interests in neuroplasticity, in particular investigating the role of molecular and neurochemical changes in learning in a chicken model.
