Summary

 

Summary

Cognitive neuroscientist conducting research in disorders of compulsive consumption - Gut Hormones in Addiction (GHADD). Much of this research is early phase translational experimental medicine - mapping the profile and potential efficacy of medications to modulate brain and behavioural markers in these disorders. Developing key methodologies that particularly exploit cognitive, reward and implicit motivational processes in these disorders - targets for future medication development. Valuable experience working in the pharma industry on early phase translational experimental medicine studies as a cognitive neuroscientist. Based at the Neuropsychopharmacology Unit, Division of Brain Sciences.
