GAMBLING ADDICTION AND THE BRAIN
CARDIFF BAY 20 JUNE 2018
Prof. Robert Rogers
Professor, School of Psychology, Bangor University
Professor Robert Rogers completed his PhD in cognitive psychology (on 'task-switching;) at Department of Experimental Psychology, Cambridge University in 1994 and then conducted post- doctoral work on the neuropsychology of executive function and cognitive control in addictive disorders with Professor Trevor Robbins and his team at the Wellcome Trust Cognitive Neuroscience Group (also at Cambridge). Professor Rogers moved to Oxford University Department of Psychiatry in 1999 where he developed further work on the psychopharmacological mechanisms that make some people vulnerable to psychological disorders such as depression, bipolar disorder and addictions. Professor Robert Rogers moved to the School of Psychology at Bangor University in 2013. Currently, he is conducting investigations of the risk factors for gambling problems (including those involving the Internet), and the role of mood in eating, gambling and alcoholic consumption. The topic Professor Rogers presents today is co-authored by him and MSM Lim from the Research Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology, University College London.
