We study the neurobiological and psychological mechanisms of adaptive behaviour and learning, including how they develop, and what role they play in psychopathology

We use functional and structural neuroimaging, neurochemical imaging, peripheral and central psychophysiology, mathematical modelling, personality and psychodiagnostic instruments, and behavioural testing

With our collaborators from multiple disciplines, we work at the interface of the following themes:
  • Network function in expert and disordered decision-making 
  • Typical and atypical adolescent brain development 
  • Multi-level studies of the regulation of emotion
  • The neurobiology of belief
  • The links between brain and cardiovascular function in development and ageing
