Dr James Walters

02920 687923

I am an academic psychiatrist whose clinical and research work centre on psychosis and schizophrenia.

My research seeks to find the genetic, biological and environmental underpinnings of these conditions. I have a particular interest in investigating the nature and basis of cognitive functioning in psychosis.

I am also interested in finding out why around a third of people do not improve on conventional treatments and to improve treatments for this group of individuals.
