Patrick T. Goodbourn
Dr Patrick Goodbourn is a cognitive neuroscientist and geneticist. His research aims to understand how genes affect the structure and function of the brain, and how this in turn affects behaviour. His primary interest is in normal and disordered perceptual and psychomotor processes. Dr Goodbourn and the members of his Genes, Brain and Behaviour laboratory investigate the genetic basis of inter-individual variation in human visual and motor processing, incorporating both behavioural and electrophysiological assessments. He is also using CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing in zebrafish to characterise the behavioural, physiological, and anatomical consequences of human genetic associates of visual variation, particularly those also implicated in psychological disorder.
