Research Interests

I investigate the neural mechanisms of action of pharmacological interventions for ADHD. Specifically, I am interested in how these drugs manipulate serotonin transmission in order to alter the signal-to-noise ratio in subcortical attention systems. I have previously explored the mechanisms of current front line ADHD pharmaceuticals, and in the future hope to identify potential candidate drugs that mimic this mechanism, whilst providing a safer profile of side effects.

  • PSY159 Critical Skills for Psychologists I
