Jonathan Jones
PhD student

Profile

I began studying the Psychology BSc at the University of Exeter in 2009 where I first became interested in research with real clinical applications. My research project in the final year examined the ‘broaden and build’ theory, specifically how positive emotions and self-compassion can broaden cognition. In the following year I completed the Psychology Research Methods MSc, graduating with a distinction and the Dean’s commendation for outstanding achievement. My research apprenticeship (carried out under the supervision of Dr. Anna Adlam) investigated the relationships between children’s (aged 8-11) ability to engage with CBT, metacognition, theory of mind and empathy. I have spent the majority of 2014 working in the Neurosciences department at Southmead hospital in Bristol. Here I have gained hands-on experience with patients who have an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI), particularly: Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Subarachnoid Haemorrhage (SAH), Subdural Haemotoma (SDH), stroke and brain tumours, as well as patients recovering from brain surgery. In September 2014 I have begun my PhD (funded by the ESRC SWDTC) which will investigate the neural correlates of working memory training in children with ADHD.
