Cognitive and neurobiological bases of major psychiatric disorders

We study psychotic disorders and neurological syndromes because we are interested in individual differences in how we perceive, interpret and interact with the world and how these processes may be broken down or enhanced. Our research program lies at the intersection between biological psychiatry and cognitive neuroscience, with developmental and social cognition components. Specifically, we are currently interested in the role of cognitive processes (e.g. working memory and control of mental representations) in social perception and social interactions, and neurocognitive basis of belief. By expanding our understanding of neurobiological bases of psychoses, we hope to further elucidate neural underpinnings of normal cognitive processes.
