Abstract: Dr Clarke is interested in how different brain areas, and the neurochemicals within them, modulate cognitive and emotion processing. She focuses particularly on structures that show disruption in human psychiatric disease, such as the orbitofrontal cortex, the ventrolateral prefrontal cortex and the medial prefrontal cortex, using behavioural, neuroimaging and neurochemical techniques.
