School experiences in children at high genetic risk of mental health problems

The molecular basis of cognitive flexibility

This project examines transcriptomes in key brain regions at critical periods to determine the molecular bases of flexible behaviour.

Investigating the childhood neurodevelopmental origins of adult mental illness
