Current Research: One of the principle investigators of an ongoing research at university of Cambridge regarding Obssessive Compulsive Disorder.Proposal as follows;
The proposed research intends to build upon previous work on OCD, inhibition and habit learning in our lab. Repetitive obsessive thoughts and compulsivity are key characteristics of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Recently published work has shown that OCD patients have a tendency towards habitual learning, at the expense of goal-directed learning (3). This means that their behaviour is less flexible in light of changes in outcome value and contingencies between actions and outcomes (4). Gillan et al (2011) however, investigated habit in an appetitive context. In the case of OCD, compulsions are avoidant and not appetitive. i.e. patients perform compulsions to reduce the likelihood of adverse consequences, not to gain rewarding outcomes (e.g. as per drug/gambling addiction).
I take pride in working with service users ,carers and their organisations.Last Christmas I organized an event for service users and their carers with chronic mental illness and we all enjoyed our Christmas dinner together with various social and charity fund raising events. We agreed that this will be repeated every year as this helps in the wellbeing of patients and carers in the positive direction.
