Tim Shallice was trained as a mathematician. Since then, he has worked from a research perspective on the organisation of the cognitive system. His main interests are in the different levels control of the system, its information-processing structure, and the particular computational mechanisms by which individual subsystems operate.

From an empirical perspective he has carried out single-case and group studies on the cognitive impairments of neurological patients from a cognitive neuropsychological perspective, and also carried out functional imaging studies and behavioural and phenomenological ones on normal subjects. He has worked on problem-solving, episodic, short-term and semantic memory, reading, writing, naming and spatial processing and their disorders. He has collaborated extensively on computational models, both connectionist and symbolic, of a variety of processes.
