Professor Emeritus of Cognitive NeuroImaging. Author #TheGenderedBrain. “Smacks of feminism with an equalities fetish” - Cristina Odone ?
She also investigates the use of neuroscience techniques to explore social processes including gender stereotyping and stereotype threat. She's an outspoken critic of ’neurotrash,' the populist (mis)use of neuroscience research to (mis)represent our understanding of the brain and, most particularly, to prop up outdated gender stereotypes. Her book on this topic ‘The Gendered Brain,’ published by Bodley Head and Penguin Random House, came out in February 2019.
