Director of the Mood and Brain Laboratory

Dr. Mary Phillips trained in medicine at the University of Cambridge in the UK and in psychiatry at the Maudsley Hospital and the Institute of Psychiatry in London. She received a research training fellowship from the Medical Research Council in the UK to examine visual scan paths in schizophrenia. She subsequently developed an interest in the application of fMRI techniques to examine the neural basis of emotion processing in healthy and psychiatric populations. Her research focuses on the identification of neural correlates that underlie the symptoms of specific abnormalities in emotion processing in people with mood disorders.
