Lynne is a senior lecturer in Cognitive Neuroscience and conducts research on functional effects of brain trauma, clinical functional measurement and developmental brain morphology. She leads and teaches on Clinical and Neuropsychology elective modules at undergraduate level and several modules at postgraduate level on the Clinical Cognitive Neuroscience course. She supervises undergraduate and postgraduate dissertation projects and several PhD students. Lynne is lead coordinator of the Brain, Behaviour and Cognition Research Group.
In 2000 Lynne was awarded a Wingate Scholarship with three years funding towards a PhD for proposed work of innovative and academic excellence to students of outstanding promise. She was also nominated for the William James award for outstanding contributions to the scientific study of consciousness in 2007. In 2012 she was nominated for an Early Career Award (International Brain Injury Association) for outstanding contributions to brain injury teaching, research and/or rehabilitation, or all three, within ten years post-PhD. She is a member of the British Neuropsychological Society and a Fellow of the New York Academy of Sciences.

Lynne Barker is an expert in cognitive neuroscience and is course leader on the MSc Applied Cognitive Neuroscience postgraduate course. She has recently published research which shows how injuries to the frontal lobe of the brain can be more severe in young adults than in older people.
