Prof Turnbull is a neuropsychologist, with an interest in emotion and its many consequences for mental life. He is also a clinician, whose work is with patients with neurological lesions, especially those who have suffered cerebro-vascular accident (stroke) and traumatic brain injury.

His scientific  interests include:

(i) emotion-based learning, including the experience that we describe as 'intuition'

(ii) the role of emotion in delusional beliefs, especially in neurological patients

(iii) the neuroscience of psychotherapy

(iv) the management and control of emotion, often called emotion regulation

(v) emotional memory, and its preservation even in profound amnesia.

He is the author of roughly 150 publications on these topics, and (together with Mark Solms) is the co-author of the popular science book 'The Brain and the Inner World' (now translated into 11 languages). For many years, he was the Editor of the interdisciplinary journal Neuropsychoanalysis, and Secretary of the International Neuropsychoanalysis Society.
