Cognition, Brain, & Behaviour Research Group

The group conducts empirical and theoretical investigations addressing questions across a range of topics in cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience. Core themes include executive functioning, selective attention, memory processes (context-dependent memory; recollection and familiarity; visual short-term memory), visual perception (faces, scenes, and objects), lie–truth judgements, emotional language, social cognition, and the effects of ageing, early-years development, clinical disorders, alcohol, and neuro-degenerative disorders on cognition. We use a variety of methods to address our questions, including behavioural measurement, eye-tracking, EEG, immersive virtual reality, neuropsychological investigations, brain stimulation, and computational modelling.
