The Blakemore Lab

The Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Group


The Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Group is based at the Department of Psychology at the University of Cambridge and the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience in London. Our research focuses on the development of social cognition, peer influence and decision making in the adolescent brain, and adolescent mental health. We run large scale behavioural studies in schools and in the lab, as well as neuroimaging studies, with adolescents and adults.
