Howard Ring


Principal Investigator


Dr Howard Ring's background is in research, education and clinical service development in neuropsychiatry and the psychiatry of intellectual disabilities (ID). Howard's research initiatives with CLAHRC included the study of non-pharmacological approaches to epilepsy management in adults with ID and the application of EEG and psychophysiological measures to investigate biological associations of behavioural symptoms in people with neurodevelopmental disorders. Howard also worked on a CLAHRC acceptability and feasibility study seeking to understand if transcutaneous vagus nerve stimulation (tVNS) modulation of heart rate variability can reduce aggression by adults with developmental or acquired brain injury.
