Sarah Wilson is a Clinical Neuropsychologist and research scientist with an interest in the interrelationships between brain processes, cognition and behaviour, and their psychosocial outworkings. This interest has issued two lines of research into the study of brain and behaviour that inform clinical practice: (1) behavioural neuroscience, with a specialty in music neurocognition, and (2) clinical neuropsychology, with a specialty in epilepsy and extensions to other medical conditions.

Her particular interest in auditory processing focuses on auditory perception and cognition and its relationship to other cognitive skills, the neurobiological basis of musical abilities and expertise, the effect of brain injury on music performance (amusia), and the use of music to facilitate cerebral recovery.
