Maddie Groom is lecturer in applied developmental cognitive neuroscience in the Division of Psychiatry at the University of Nottingham. Her research aims to understand the neural basis of developmental psychiatric disorders such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Tourette Syndrome (TS) and schizophrenia, to develop more effective tools for diagnosis and treatment in child and adolescent psychiatry. In particular, she is interested in why the symptoms and cognitive deficits of these disorders so frequently overlap and what this overlap tells us about shared (and specific) mechanisms of risk for psychiatric disorders.
