Morein Lab

Advancing Cognitive Control and Mental Health Research

Our Focus

The Morein Lab aims to advance scientific knowledge and understanding of how problems with cognitive and response control can contribute to mental health conditions. 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 Hoarding Disorder (HD). The lab is led by Dr Sharon Morein (aka Morein-Zamir) and is based at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, UK.
