Dr Sally Till is a Walter Muir Autistica Fellow at The Patrick Wild Centre
The overarching goal of my current work is to aid in improving therapeutic approaches to cognitive disorders with the ultimate aim of enhancing human clinical trial efficacy.
Though mainly a Patrick Wild Centre researcher focused on developing an improved experimental framework for studying cognitive and behavioural symptoms of autism spectrum disorders and related disorders, Sally recently curated a large scale outdoor art exhibition, The Brain Is WiderThan The Sky. The project highlighted the beauty and complexities of the typical and diseased brain and emphasised local research on neurodevelopmental disorders as a means of promoting tolerance and a better understanding of individuality. Consisting of 38 large-scale pictures generated by Edinburgh neuroscientists, the exhibition ran in St Andrew Square gardens in the heart of Edinburgh.
