Overview

Huw Williams is an Associate Professor of Clinical Neuropsychology and Co-Director of the Centre for Clinical Neuropsychology Research (CCNR) at Exeter University.

He gained his PhD and his Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of Wales, Bangor. He was on the founding staff team of the Oliver Zangwill Centre (OZC) for Neuropsychological Rehabilitation in Ely and Visiting Scientist at the Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit in Cambridge. In 2006 he was a Visiting Scholar at the Rehabilitation Studies Unit, University of Sydney, Australia. He has honorary positions with the OZC and the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital’s Emergency Department. He has published papers and books and held grants in a range of areas of Clinical Neuropsychology – particularly on neuro-rehabilitation and recently regarding crime.

Current projects include: tracking effects of Mild TBI and Acute Stress Disorder on Post-Concussion Syndrome, Computerised Neurocognitive testing of MTBI patients to predict outcomes (in Sports),  DTI/VBM neuroimaging of elite concussed rugby players and processing of emotions after brain injury.

In the area of crime he:

-  produced an overview for practitioners and policy makers and practitioners on TBI & Crime, Repairing shattered lives (French version also available);  

- led on a report for the British Psychological Society (BPS) working group on Neuro-Disability in children and young people in custody;

-  with Nathan Hughes a report on Neuro-disability and TBI in young offenders in children in custody for the Office of the Children's Commissioner (England);  

- established, with Child Brain Injury Trust (CBIT) and General Lord Ramsbotham, the Criminal Justice and Acquired Brain Injury Group (CJAABIG) and produced an infographic to illustrate the links between TBI and crime;

- wrote, with Dr Prathiba Chitasabesan, a report on the use of linkworkers for young offenders to manage TBI in custody,

- supported the Centre for mental health in producing a report on the economic costs of crime due to TBI. He also recently edited a special issue on TBI and Crime for the Journal of head Trauma Rehabilitation.

- In March 2015 he was guest editor of the Journal of Head Trauma Rehabilitation on TBI & Crime in young people

- In November 2017 contributed to Lancet Neurology - Traumatic Brain Injury: Integrated approaches to improve prevention, clinical care, and research http://www.thelancet.com/commissions/traumatic-brain-injury

Research

Research interests

  • Neuropsychological rehabilitation, particularly involving the role of emotion
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder in brain injury
  • Cognitive therapy for people with neurological conditions
  • Autobiographical memory access in neurological patients.

Current research includes:

The epidemiology (incidence and risk factors) of brain injury - projects developed with local NHS colleagues in A&E and Public health.

Identity, memory and traumatic experiences and development of post-traumatic stress disorder.

Neuro-cognitive profiling – e.g. in Sports Concussion and in Encephalitis (with Encephalitis Society).

fMR Imaging of brain activation in pain conditions with colleagues in medical Physics and from Rheumatology the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital.

Emotional dys-regulation post brain injury in children.

Family and parenting issues post-brain injury. Identifying and managing mood disorders (e.g. Post traumatic Stress) after brain injury.

Integration of Cognitive Therapy and Neurorehabilitation for survivors of brain injury.
