In this live-stream presentation, Professor McCrory will discuss his amazing work on brain scanning children who have suffered from traumatic life experiences.

He is one of a team of researchers at UCL working to examine the impact on mental and physical trauma on developing brains and how this effects a child’s emotionality, behaviour, emotional regulation and perception. Children participate in the research play games while their brains are scanned. The magnets inside can detect subtle changes in the brain relating to traumatic experiences. Most importantly, Professor McCrory will then discuss prevention and intervention.
