Prof Eamon McCrory is Professor of Developmental Neuroscience and Psychopathology at UCL. His research uses brain imaging and psychological approaches to investigate the impact of childhood maltreatment on emotional development and mental health. The aim of his work is to understand how and why mental health problems can unfold, and how we might intervene to promote more resilient outcomes for children.
