Eilidh Smith presented a poster describing her research study on Cognitive Biases and Low Mood in Adolescents.
PhD in Clinical Psychology student Eilidh Smith won the best poster prize at the Scottish Mental Health Research Network (SMHRN) Annual Scientific Meeting
Her key findings suggest that adolescents experiencing low mood, or have a personality risk factor of neuroticism, are more likely to be biased towards the negative when they interpret and remember information. Her work was supervised by Dr Stella Chan and Dr Ethel Quayle, in collaboration with Prof Shirley Reynolds's team at the Charlie Waller Institute (University of Reading), and generously supported by the University of Edinburgh Moray Endowment Fund. This poster was selected as the best student poster in the SMHRN Annual Scientific Meeting. Well done and congratulations!
