Francesca Happé

Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience, MRC SGDP Center, Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London

Francesca Happé’s research in cognitive neuroscience focuses specifically on autism and investigation of related typical and atypical developmental processes, particularly as they relate to social cognition.

On 24 July, Francesca Happé discussed the ‘fractionable triad’ hypothesis she helped develop: the notion that the core symptoms that comprise autism might be inherited independently, implying distinct underlying biological causes.

Happé is professor of cognitive neuroscience at King’s College London, as well as the new president of theInternational Society for Autism Research.
