  • Professor of Mental Health Director & Sackler Chair, UCL Institute of Mental Health
  • Division of Psychiatry
  • Faculty of Brain Sciences

I graduated in medicine from Glasgow University in 1980 and trained in neurology before entering psychiatry at the Maudsley Hospital, London.  I also have a Masters degree in Cognitive Neuropsychology.  I was an honorary consultant at the Maudsley from 1990-2018 and was awarded a personal chair from the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London in 1996. I was Vice Dean for Academic Psychiatry at the IoPPN in 2013-8.

I have a wide and diverse range of research interests including schizophrenia, neuropsychiatry, medically unexplained syndromes and neuroimaging – both structural and functional.  I am especially interested in the concept of insight in schizophrenia and how this relates to treatment compliance and decision making capacity. I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, the Royal College of Psychiatrists and the Academy of Medical Sciences; a member of the Experimental Psychology Society and a founder member of both the British Neuropsychological Society and British Neuropsychiatry Association and was Chairman to the latter from 2004-7. I delivered the inaugural “King’s Lectures” in 2018 on the topic “Psychiatry, Science and Society”.

I am editor of the journal “Cognitive Neuropsychiatry” and have co-edited several books including, The Self in Neuroscience and Psychiatry (2003) with Tilo Kircher, and Insight and Psychosis (2nd Ed) (2004) with Xavier Amador and Lishman’s Organic Psychiatry (2009).  I am author of over 550 publications in peer reviewed medical and scientific journals.
