Dr Kaylor-Hughes' main area of research interest is in mental health. She is currently a research fellow and project manager for the CLAHRC Mood Disorders study. This research is investigating a model of collaborative care between psychiatry and psychotherapy to improve outcome for people with long-term unipolar depression.
Previously she has used structural and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging to investigate the biology of avolition in schizophrenia and to explore complex cognitive behaviours such as lying, verbal fluency, free association and social hierarchies.
