Our research focuses on the relationship between body and mind, enabling the development of new approaches to treating mental health conditions—such as depression.
Our research is clinically focused.
We work to prevent, detect, and treat mental health conditions.
We want to diagnose faster and smarter—using AI to our advantage.
We mapped the development of the human brain from in-utero to a hundred years of age. Giving us unprecedented insight into the changes in our brains over our lifetime. Showing us how it can adapt to meet the challenges set by every life stage.
We are working to harness the power of machine learning—analysing large data sets to identify children and young people at risk for mental health conditions or learning difficulties.
All our research works to inform policymakers, healthcare providers and educators to best support all minds to overcome challenges, learn and adapt.
We have raised awareness of stigmatising conditions—such as psychosis—by working with video game designers to help develop characters with the condition beloved by millions of players.
Our research groups
Cambridge Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Group
Aiming to help those with intellectual and developmental disabilities live a long, healthy, happy life and support their families.
Cognitive Mechanisms of Learning and Development
CALM aims to identify cognitive, behavioural, neural and genetic dimensions that underpin a broad range of cognitive difficulties faced in childhood to develop appropriate diagnostic techniques and create new effective interventions.
Working on a range of research projects to understand what drives human behaviours. From the mechanisms of psychosis to the effect of the global pandemic on eating disorders to understanding the psychology of eating.
Interventional Neuropsychiatry Group
The IP group focuses on understanding mechanisms underlying impulsivity and compulsivity and optimizing neuromodulation therapeutic outcomes for addictions and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Systems and Computational Neuroscience
The Systems and Computational Neuroscience group applies tools from physics, engineering and network science to fundamental questions in neuroscience and mental health.
We are committed to maintaining the high standards of research practice at Cambridge. We at the University will uphold the commitments outlined in Universities UK’s Concordat to Support Research Integrity.
