Objective to a fault.
I am a researcher of cognitive neuroscience at a Russell Group university in the UK, specialising in motivational processing (hedonics). I also work with a major industrial partner. I have studied and researched psychology, along with statistics and research methods for over 10 years which culminated in PhD in Psychology and health with a focus on motivational processing. I have extensive experience in mentoring, teaching, counselling and working with both neurological damage, mental health issues, and learning disabilities.
I'm passionate about logic and reason, as a consequence I believe improving the language and evidence we use in psychology is fundamental helping individuals understand psychology. Options and suppositions all too often prevail in popular culture when discussing psychological functions or mental health. In the contemporary environments there are huge amounts of research detailing how the brain processes information and how this influences our thinking and behaviour. We need to continue to move away from opinions and feelings, and toward evidence and facts.
