Brain and Cognition Research Group

Psychology research

Our Brain and Cognition Research Group is concerned with cognition in the healthy brain and the nature of impairment in clinical populations.

Our primary aim is to develop theoretical accounts of cognitive functions in the healthy brain and to consider how our research might further understanding of clinical conditions and rehabilitative strategies.

Primary areas of interest include executive function, memory, object and face processing, language, intelligence, cognitive development, bodily self-consciousness, neural network modelling and decision-making. Our research incorporates multiple convergent methodologies, including classic experimental cognitive approaches, EEG and fMRI. Research under this theme is organised into the following research areas:

We offer our Psychology PhD. We have also identified a range of innovative research project opportunities for postgraduate researchers.
