Research Themes

Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience

Clinical and Veterinary Neuroscience

Interests

My research focuses on the neurochemical and neural substrates of cognition, and psychiatric endophenotypes.

Brain activation during reversal of responses. Patients with OCD and their unaffected relatives showed under-active brain regions during reversal compared to people with no family history of the condition.
