Dr Robert Dudas
I have carried out research projects on cognitive impairment in the context of progressive-degenerative dementias and affective symptomatology.
My current research focuses on the neurobiology of emotional dysregulation and self-harm in the affective disorders in a broad sense, including borderline personality disorder. I am interested in identifying cognitive and psychophysiological markers of pathological mood states with a view to developing novel treatments for these conditons. Our methodology includes functional brain imaging, neuropsychological tests, and physiological measurement.

Borderline personality disorder
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
Psychophysiological measures (e.g. galvanic skin response, heart rate, respiratory rate, etc)
