policy and interventions

Professor Miriam Klein Flügge, Principal Investigator for the Motivation, Decision and Neurostimulation Group at the University of Oxford, presented findings on connections between activity in the amygdala and behavioural dimensions in human wellbeing in the latest of the Wellbeing Research Centre’s Seminar Series.

Her research examines activity in the notoriously difficult-to-study region of the brain in the context of several robust dimensions of mental health and wellbeing.
