Margot Overman

Clinical Psychology Trainee


I am a trainee clinical psychologist affiliated with the Oxford Institute of Clinical Psychology Training and Research. Prior to my clinical training I completed a PhD in Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Oxford, in which I explored the potential of non-invasive brain stimulation as a treatment for depression. My postdoctoral work has centred on determining the neural and cognitive mechanisms underlying neuropsychological impairments and low mood associated with stroke and dementia.

Currently, I am developing a project exploring the impact of social isolation on the emotional well-being of stroke survivors with cognitive impairments. Overall, my research aims to apply knowledge gained from neuroimaging, cognitive, and psychological measures to the development of new support strategies for long-term cognitive and mental health difficulties after acquired brain injuries.
