Neuroscience Research Theme

We research a variety of topics including addiction, cognitive biases in anxiety and depression, communication, decision making, dementia, eating disorders, effort, face processing, neuroergonomics, language, memory, pain, social interaction, time perception, and affective touch. We examine these topics combining the analysis of both behaviour and brain, using techniques such as electroencephalography (EEG), electrocardiography (ECG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS), microneurography, impedance cardiography (ICG), facial electromyography (facial EMG), and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).

Our research has been funded by the BIAL Foundation, the British Academy, the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory, the Economic and Social Research Council, the European Commission, the Health and Safety Executive, Innovate UK, the Leverhulme Trust, the National Institute on Aging, the Swiss National Science Foundation, the Univers Foundation, and the Experimental Psychology Society, as well as other private organisations and charities.

The 17 principal researchers who are active in this group have a variety of psychology, physiology, and cognitive neuroscience backgrounds. They are experts in their respective field and hold key roles within professional membership bodies and associates, chair funding panels, provide expert commentaries for media and speak at national and international conferences.
