Camilla Nord

Camilla is a neuroscientist at the Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, University of Cambridge, whose expertise is the brain basis of mental health.

Her goal is to discover how cognitive neuroscience can be translated into new clinical treatments and prevention techniques, particularly for mental health conditions or symptoms falling at the intersection of physical and mental health.

Her first book, The Balanced Brain: The Real Neuroscience of Wellbeing, examines what we really know about things like happiness, pleasure and mental health in the brain, and will be published by Penguin Press.
