James Lyle Findon


I joined the NatBrainLab in 2014 while doing my MSc in Neuroscience. My thesis examined the limbic system in ASD and its association with depression and anxiety. Previous to that, I had worked for a couple of years at the IoPPN in various autism and adhd research projects. I am now working towards my PhD, in which I am investigating the serotonin system in ASD and the interaction between  structural and functional connectivity and drug modulation. My research interests include limbic system abnormalities in ASD, neurotransmitter imbalances and the relationship between structural and functional connectivity. I teach on the KCL Psychology BSc and coach Athletics at the university. I also chair the London Universitiesand colleges athletics association  (LUCA). Between my phd and athletics there is little downtime, but in those rare moments I enjoy playing guitar, hiking, reading and exaggerating my interests to make it sound like I'm a 'rounded person'.
