Grace Warner


Research Assistant

I am a Research Assistant in the Psychopharmacology and Emotion Research Lab (PERL). I am currently working on the Glutamate Emotion Memory Study (GEMS) study. This is a parallel-arm, placebo controlled, double-blind, randomised experimental medicine trial investigating the effect of ketamine on emotional processing and brain activities associated with autobiographical memories, emotional processing and decision-making tasks in participants with treatment-resistant depression. My responsibilities flexibly encompass the protocol, including participant recruitment, screening, and facilitating research visits.

I am passionate about mental health research, particularly neural and cognitive changes associated with mood disorders and their treatments. Prior to this role, I completed a Masters in Cognitive Neuroscience and Psychology at the University of Manchester investigating neural correlates of emotion processing in depression and independently administered online Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
