Overview

Dr Anna Adlam is a Chartered Clinical Psychologist (D.Clin.Psy.) and academic Neuropsychologist (Ph.D.), who specialises in working with individuals who have survived paediatric brain injury. Anna gained her Ph.D., investigating dissociations in memory in developmental amnesia, at the Institute of Child Health, UCL (1999-2003). Following this, Anna worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the MRC-Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit (2003-2006), investigating the neural correlates of semantic memory. Anna went on to complete her doctoral training in Clinical Psychology at the University of East Anglia (UEA, 2006-2009) before joining the UEA as a Clinical Lecturer/Senior Lecturer. Anna also worked as a clinical psychologist for the Cambridge Centre of Paediatric Neuropsychological Rehabilitation (2009-2012). Anna joined the University of Exeter as a Senior Lecturer in 2012 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2019. Anna completed a British Academy Mid-Career Fellowship (2015-17), which focused on adapting an online problem-solving intervention for children aged 9 -12 years old who had survived a brain injury (in collaboration with Professor Shari Wade). Anna is the Co-Director for Research for the D.Clin.Psy programme, Research Lead for the Child and Adolescent Neuropsychology group and co-ordinates the Paediatric Neurocognitive Interventions Research Group, an international research network conducting studies in the UK/Europe USA and Australia.

Research

Research interests

The main focus of Anna's research is to develop and evaluate interventions for young people who experience neuropsychological difficulties (e.g., following an acquired brain injury). Research themes include:

  • memory and executive processes
  • mood disorders
  • social function

Anna is particularly interested in how these processes interact and influence each other. Research techniques include:

  • experimental neuropsychology
  • neuroimaging
  • single case experimental designs
  • randomised controlled designs

Research projects

Funded projects include:

  • a feasibility study investigating the clinical and cost-effectiveness of Teen Online Problem-Solving (TOPS-UK) for young people following brain injury (NIHR RfPB)
  • developing a web-based problem-solving intervention for children aged 9-11 years following brain injury (British Academy Mid-Career Fellowship and NIHR Brain MIC)
  • the efficacy of computerised working memory training in children who have survived a brain injury - a phase II randomised controlled trial (Action Medical Research)
  • an evaluation of novel working memory training to reduce rumination and depression in young people (ISSF Wellcome Trust)

Doctoral student projects include:

  • developing an intervention to improve peer relationships in adolescents who have survived a brain injury (Scott Ankrett)
  • evaluating behavioural activtaion for low mood in adolescents who have survived a brain injury (Conor O'Brien)
  • the neural correlates of working memory training in children with ADHD (Jonathan Jones - completed)
  • developing and evaluating executive control training in adolescents (Jo Green - completed)
  • executive control and moral reasoning in survivors of paediatric brain injury (Beverly Garrigan - completed)
  • role of executive control in rumination and depression in adolescents/young people (Rebecca Pepper, Erika Baker, and Claire Stephens - completed)
