Our Blog Spot feature highlights individual blogs that have caught our attention through a shared interest in psychiatry, psychology and neuroscience.

This week, we’ll introduce you to a blog by The Emotional Development, Interventions and Treatment (EDIT) lab – consisting of a group of researchers led by Prof Thalia Eley, Dr Tom McAdams and Dr Kate Lester.

Based at the Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Centre at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) at King’s College London,  this research group studies the role of genetic, cognitive and environmental factors in the development and treatment of emotional difficulties; such as anxiety and depression.
