We are a cognitive neuroscience lab based at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, University College London. Our research focuses on understanding the human brain's capacity for metacognition and self-awareness, and how these mechanisms are altered in disorders of mental health.

Self-awareness depends on building knowledge about ourselves and our capacities, often in the absence of feedback from the outside world. By designing innovative experiments we aim to deconstruct self-awareness into its component parts, such as how we recognise our errors or develop beliefs about our skills and abilities. 

We combine theoretical models with a range of behavioural and cognitive neuroscience approaches including functional and structural MRI, TMS, M/EEG and eye tracking. We are strongly committed to translating our research findings into benefits for mental health and wider society.
