Interests

NSPN (NeuroScience in Psychiatry Network) is a new venture from the University of Cambridge and University College London, which launched in November 2012. We are researching how the adolescent mind and brain develops into early adulthood. To do this, several exciting new studies looking at different areas of brain development will be run at various points over the next five years. We are aiming to create a volunteer panel of over 2,000 individuals aged 14-24, who may be invited to take part in some of these studies.
