Dr Richard Webster
Dr Richard Webster, Research Neurologist Dr Webster is a paediatric neurologist with an interest in the biological causes of paediatric language disorders. He completed his medical training in 1986, and spent a short period of time in general practise before undertaking further training in paediatrics at Sydney Children's Hospital. He completed his paediatric training in 1998, and then trained in paediatric neurology at both Sydney Children's Hospital and The Children's Hospital at Westmead. He completed his training in paediatric neurology in September 2001, and was awarded his MSc in October 2003. Richard joined CHERI in 2004, and has a joint appointment with the Paediatric Department of The Children's Hospital at Westmead and the University of Sydney. Richard became interested in the biological basis of paediatric language disorders after studying a group of children with acquired language impairment and epilepsy (acquired epileptic aphasia, Landau-Kleffner syndrome). After completing his neurology training he undertook research at the Montreal Children's Hospital (Dr Michael Shevell) and the Montreal Neurological Institute (Professor Alan Evans) investigating the developmental and functional outcomes associated with a pre-school diagnosis of developmental language impairment. Richard is interested in the use of techniques developed at the Montreal Neurological Institute for the computerised analysis of magnetic resonance images (Voxel base morphometry, automated cortical thickness estimation) to investigate the biological basis of paediatric language and cognitive disorders. Richard is particularly interested in the impact of neurological disease on a child's language development.
