Summary

Research areas include neurodevelopmental disorders associated with abnormalities in social behaviour; infant brain myelination, and the effect of maternal stress and mental illness on this process; innovative methods for measuring the development of brain ‘connectivity’; understanding how abnormalities in this lead to deficits in language/ empathy, and to antisocial behaviour; the strongest evidence yet that psychopathy is a distinct neuro-developmental sub-group of anti-social personality disorder (ASPD), using evidence from MRI scans.
