Biography

Ruth Ogden is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology. She was awarded a PhD from the University of Manchester in 2008. Her PhD explored the role of long-term memory in memory for duration. She started working as a Lecturer in Psychology at LJMU in 2009.

Ruth's research focuses on how humans perceive the passage of time. She is particularly interested in how wider cognitive processes underpin timing and how emotions may influence our perception of duration.

Ruth is a member of the Experimental Psychology Society and also serves on the Editorial Board for Frontiers in Cognitive Psychology.
