  • Sanne de Wit Dr Sanne de Wit
    Whilst our actions are often goal-directed, slips of action reveal that automatic, or habitual, mechanisms can take over. Although the concepts of goal-directed action and habits are well-grounded in folk psychology, most empirical research so far...
  • Veronika Dobler Dr Veronika Dobler MRCPsych, PhD
    I am interested in the effect of Early Live Adversity (ELA) on neuro-cognitive development in later life. Psychological theories have long recognized that selective processing and distortions in appraisal of day-to day events as well as cognitive...
