Morein Lab

Advancing Mental Health and Cognitive Research 

Our Focus

The Morein Lab aims to advance scientific knowledge and understanding of mental health difficulties relating to compulsivity and impulsivity. Our research integrates experimental psychology, psychiatry and  cognitive neuroscience . To date, our research has focused in particular on Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (OCD), Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and  increasingly Hoarding Disorder (HD). The lab is led by Dr Sharon Morein (aka Morein-Zamir) and is based at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, UK.
