    Dr Joana Taylor Tavares

    University Position
    Research Cooridnator


    I am currently working at research coordinator at the Adaptive Brain Lab. My PhD used functional magnetic resonance imaging to investigate oversensitivity to negative feedback in both Major Depressive Disorder and Bipolar Disorder. The work was carried out in Cambridge and at the National Institutes of Health (USA) as part of the NIH-Cambridge Health Science Scholars Programme under the supervision of Professor Barbara Sahakian and Dr Wayne Drevets. During my post-doc I worked on an ESRC-funded project on primary school children?s tacit and explicit understanding of object motion.
