Current Research Students

Here are the researchers currently pursuing their degrees at the Faculty of Social Sciences. Reflecting the outlook of the faculty, the body of the researchers is of a culturally diverse and international nature. This allows for unique and intellectually challenging, as well as stimulating views, insights, and experiences, which each researcher may hold and communicate, and in such a way enrich the body of knowledge.

Rabia Khalid

Division: Psychology


Nationality: British

Research interests: 

My research is predominantly focused around the investigation of effect of caffeine and tiredness on the tip-of-the-tongue state (TOT).  Although this is a common word retrieval failure in us all, at the pathological level, word finding difficulties are seen in sufferers of Alzheimer's disease and some aphasia patients.  Therefore, investigations of the brain basis of the TOT state is crucial. I will be examining if TOT resolution improves with the consumption of caffeine, alongside phonological priming.  And whether it is attributed to the adenosine mimicking properties of caffeine, which in result reduces the release of stimulatory neurotransmitters, improving wakefulness, vigilance and motor activities.

PhD Title: Investigation within the field of Tip-Of-The-Tongue state relating to phonological priming, tiredness and the effects caffeine TOT resolution.
