Developmental Computational Psychiatry Group

Why do so many mental health problems emerge during adolescence? What are the developmental processes in cognition and brain that go awry and lead to psychiatric disorders?

The Developmental Computational Psychiatry lab uses modern cognitive neuroscience and computational modelling methods to understand the how deviations from normative developmental trajectories can lead to the emergence of psychiatric symptoms and how we may be able to detect and intervene before such processes go awry.

Our lab is based at the Max Planck UCL Centre for Computational Psychiatry and Ageing Research, and the Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging at University College London.
Our research is supported by Wellcome, Royal Society, Jacobs Foundation, Brain & Behavior Research Foundation, Medical Research Foundation, and the Max Planck Society.
