Current Research

In my research I examine cognitive ability in children and adolescents diagnosed with Tourette’s Syndrome in a collaboration with Touretteklinikken at Herlev Hospital.

The cohort consist of around 200 patients aged 13-25 and around 50 healthy controls. The cohort is divided into subgroups based on occurrence of remission, co-morbidity and severity of tics.

The study mainly focuses on visual attention, impulse control (responds inhibition) and time processing along with a screening for premonitory urges/sensations and schizotypal personality traits. 

Main interests
Tourette’s Syndrome, Schizophrenia, genetic/endophenotypic research, cognitive and neuropsychological ability in mental disorders and translational research.
