A/Prof Burrell has subspecialist training and expertise in the assessment and management of younger-onset (<70 years) and atypical dementia syndromes.
In addition to clinical practice, A/Prof Burrell maintains a busy clinical research interest, with research clinics at Concord General Hospital as part of a broader research program based at the University of Sydney.
A/Prof Burrell's research focuses on the clinical, neuropsychological, neurophysiological, and neuroimaging characteristics of dementias, with a specific aim of improving diagnostic and prognostic markers. He has more than 45 peer reviewed manuscripts in high-impact international journals, and reviews regularly for international journals and funding bodies.
A/Prof Burrell completed a 12 month fellowship in clinical neurophysiology at Concord Hospital in 2008, receiving training from some of the most respected neurophysiologists in the country. Clinical neurophysiological methods also formed an important part of his PhD studies.
More recently, A/Prof Burrell assumed coordination of a postgraduate unit of study for the University of Sydney entitled 'Clinical Neurophysiology Techniques (CLNP5003)'.
Given his sub-specialist expertise, A/Prof Burrell personally performs nerve conduction studies and electromyography meaning that complex clinical problems can be sorted out in a single appointment. Please make sure to request a 'consultation and test' if you wish a clinical opinion as well as neurophysiological testing.
