We are a team of researchers based at the Behavioural and Clinical Neuroscience Institute (BCNI) and the Department of Psychology of the University of Cambridge. Our work focuses on understanding the neural basis of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and other related psychiatric and neurological disorders. Our group uses a variety of methods for studying these systems in humans, including sophisticated psychological paradigms for investigating cognitive functions and impulsivity in both healthy subjects and patients; these include the computerised CANTAB battery. We also employ several neuroimaging techniques such as EEG, MRS, fMRI and PET to determine when and where in the human brain various cognitive operations are carried out. We are also interested in establishing how drugs work to produce changes in brain chemistry, and how these affect behaviour.
