Dr Jonathan Delafield-Butt

Jonathan Delafield-Butt is a Reader in Child Development and Director of the Laboratory for Innovation in Autism at Strathclyde.  His work examines the origins of conscious experience and the embodied and emotional foundations of psychological development, with attention to the subtle but significant motor disruption evident in autism spectrum disorder.  He took his Ph.D. in Developmental Neurobiology at the University of Edinburgh Medical School before extending to Developmental Psychology with application of intersubjectivity theory in postdoctoral work at the Universities of Edinburgh and Copenhagen.  He held scholarships at Harvard University and the Institute for Advanced Studies at the University of Edinburgh for science-philosophy bridgework.  Delafield-Butt trained pre-clinically in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy at the Scottish Institute for Human Relations.  He is a member of the World Association for Infant Mental Health and the International Society for Autism Research. His team currently develops bespoke wearable and smart device serious games to characterise the motor disruption in autism spectrum disorder, and its social and psychological consequences.  He has collaboration with the University of Pisa on brainstem imaging of young children with autism, a likely major contributor to the motor disruption in ASD.

Dr Rajeev Krishnadas

I completed my basic medical training from Govt Medical College, Thrissur, India, and MD in psychiatry from TN Medical college, Bombay University, India. Following this, I was sponsored by the British Council PGME scheme to train in psychiatry in the UK.  I am a member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, and completed my PhD from the University of Glasgow.

I currently work as a Consultant Psychiatrist with the NHS GGC in ESTEEM, the only early intervention in psychosis team in Scotland.

Academic area of interest include using functional MRI and functional connectivity to predict outcomes in complex mental health problems. Linking inflammation to brain connectivity.

Dr William McGeown

My research is mainly focused on investigating the cognitive and neural correlates of a range of neuropsychiatric symptoms (e.g., delusions, sleep disorder, depression, apathy).

I am interested in improving the diagnosis/detection of Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia (especially in the earliest stages) through customised assessment methods or through the use of multivariate markers.  Variants of these markers could also be used to stratify patients or as outcome measures for clinical drug trials.  Relatedly, I have interests in developing methods to speed drug development.

I have projects underway to develop serum blood-based biomarkers for the dementias (in combination with other methods), to investigate the diagnostic utility of customised neuropsychological tests (and analysis methods), and in the near future hope to begin a project that will utilise electrophysiological methods.

I have an additional research line that focuses on understanding the neural bases of hypnosis and suggestibility. By targeting individual differences suggestion can be used to study elements of psychosis, changes in agency, and other interesting psychological and behavioural phenomena.

Within my research I use structural magnetic resonance imaging techniques (voxel-based morphometry and cortical thickness assessment), functional magnetic resonance imaging (brain activity and connectivity analyses), electrophysiological methods, and neuropsychological assessment.
