Dr Rogers currently conducts research investigating the neural substrates associated with the development and prognosis of antisocial behavior in children and adolescents. This work uses functional and structural MRI. Amongst other aspects of behavior and neural processing, his work explores the relationship between processing of emotional faces and vocalizations and brain structure/functioning.


BSc, MSc, PhD (Cantab)


Dr Rogers completed his PhD at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit in Cambridge working on speech processing and comprehension in the human brain. Before moving to the University of Birmingham, Dr Rogers was a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Oxford using functional MRI, and combined functional MRI and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) techniques to explore the functional and anatomical organization of the human brain.


Research interests

Dr Rogers uses behavioural, neurocognitive, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and structural/functional magnetic resonance brain imaging techniques to better understand the characteristics of different subgroups of children and adults displaying severe antisocial behaviour and psychopathic traits.
