Julia is a communicator for The Cambridge Neuroscience Society and was shortlisted for The Max Perutz Science Writing Award.

I chat with Julia about her research into adolescent OCD, memory, why low confidence and low self esteem can be a side effect of OCD. She expresses the need for patient centred treatment and treating adolescent OCD as a subtype, as adolescents show different results and markers from adults with OCD. Advice for parents with kids with OCD. This was a fun conversation, I learned a lot and I’m sure you will too. Enjoy.
