We are very pleased to welcome Professor Tony Holland, from the Department of Psychiatry who holds the Health Foundation Chair in Learning Disabilities. He will be delivering a talk entitled: A window on the biology of behaviour: insights from syndromes of genetic origin.

His two main areas of research interest include: first, investigating the relationship between particular genetic syndromes and associated psychiatric and behavioural disorders (e.g. Prader-Willi Syndrome and over-eating, and Down’s Syndrome and Alzheimer’s disease) and, secondly, clinico-legal studies, including studies investigating the capacity of people with learning disabilities to make particular decisions.

This talk is part of the Cambridge Café Scientifique series.
