Project Description

In our research group we are interested in how the brains response to reward and aversion might be a biomarker for risk to depression in adults and adolescents. We use a variety of techniques to test this using neurocognitive methods. A PhD in our lab will provide a firm grounding in fMRI data collection and analysis with a view to achieving publications. You would join a team of undergrads, MSc and PhD students all working on reward related projects but you would also have scope to develop your own PhD ideas. We have exceptional imaging facilities and computing suites to undertake this work. The lab are also interested in psychopharmacological and psychological interventions and how these interact with the brains reward system in relation to psychiatric disorders. A background in computation is ideal but not essential.
