Dr Camilla Nord is an Investigator Scientist at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, University of Cambridge. After reading for a degree in Physiology and Psychology at the University of Oxford, she completed her doctoral training at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, University College London under the supervision of Profs. Jonathan Roiser and Sven Bestmann, where she ran a clinical trial measuring the neural, cognitive, and clinical effects of frontal cortex stimulation combined with psychological therapy in depression and investigated putative ‘biomarkers’ of response. In 2017, she took up a post-doctoral position in the lab of Dr Valerie Voon at the University of Cambridge Department of Psychiatry working on novel dual-coil transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) approaches. Currently, she is developing a programme of research with Prof. Tim Dalgleish investigating the neurocomputational mechanisms of somatic and emotional symptoms in psychiatric disorders, using multimodal approaches, including computational modelling, brain stimulation, brain imaging, and pharmacology.
We are extremely excited to welcome Camilla back to the Brainbox Initiative Conference 2019 this September where she will be presenting her research, her findings, and discussing the future work that her research is helping to make possible.
The Brainbox Initiative Conference 2019 is taking place at the Wellcome Collection in central London on September 26-27, 2019. Registration is open now, and you can view the full programme here.
