Dr McLennan's research centres on higher-order processes associated with the frontal lobes such as executive functions, prospective memory, and social behaviour. She is particularly interested in the mechanisms that lead to changes in these abilities and the impact that these changes have in everyday life.
Her research focuses on groups such as older people, long term opiate users, and people affected by cardiovascular disease. She collaborates closely with researchers from the Cognition and Emotion Research Centre, and employs methods such as neuropsychological assessment, structured behavioural assessments, and biophysiological assessment (e.g. saliva sampling for hormone measurement, EMG, brain stimulation).

My research interests are predominantly focussed on the interplay between cognition and psychological disorders. My PhD investigated cognitive risk factors for depression(specifically rumination and thought suppression)in females. I am currently involved in a number of projects investigating the neurocognitive impact of concussion. Those projects include the development and assessment of a test battery to assess neurocognitive deficits and facilitate training to aid in recovery. I am also interested in all aspects of memory, as well as scale development and validation.
