In this podcast, Dr Sinead Rhodes discusses ADHD and neurodevelopmental disorders with freelance journalist Jo Carlowe.
Sinead discusses her latest research, cognitive factors underlying mental health and tailored interventions. Additionally, Sinead talks about Research the Headlines, a multidisciplinary project she set up focused on improving the public’s understanding of research presented in the media.
Sinéad is a developmental psychologist who is interested in the cognitive factors underlying behaviour, learning and mental health. Her research has principally focused on cognition, especially memory and associated executive functions, in children with neurodevelopmental disorders, including ADHD, ASD and Williams syndrome.
She also examines cognitive factors underlying mental health especially depression and anxiety, and is particularly interested in cognition and depression within the context of neurodevelopmental disorders. (bio via The University of Edinburgh)
