Psychophysiology

Psychophysiology Research Group

Cutting edge laboratory research and collaborative partnerships with industry

The Psychophysiology Research Group comprises academics and postgraduates who study human behaviour with a focus on the interaction between psychology and physiological systems.

Expertise

The group consolidates expertise in psychophysiological (EEG, EMG, cardiac measures, eye-tracking) and neurophysiological techniques (fNIRS) to study human behaviour.

Current research topics include:

  • Psychological and physiological mechanisms underlying cognitive and physical effort
  • Psychophysiological measures of embodied emotional states
  • Applied neuro/psychophysiology in human factors research
  • Psychophysiological mechanisms in social cue perception

Collaborations

We collaborate with researchers across LJMU from pharmacy, computing and public health, and we have strong collaborations with external partners including the BIAL Foundation, the Geneva Motivation Lab at the University of Geneva, Leiden University, Nano Games, VU University Medical Center, Unilever, The Experimental Psychology Society, The British Academy

Teaching and learning

All staff in the group contribute to teaching modules on the BSc (Hons) Psychology programme and some to the Health Psychology (MSc) and Brain and Behaviour (MSc) programmes.

Facitilies

The group conducts its research within modern laboratories housed in the Tom Reilly Building. Amongst others, we have a cardiovascular laboratory equipped for the assessment of autonomic activity associated with cognitive tasks, a psychophysiology laboratory equipped for recording a range of measures including ECG, EMG, skin conductance, and eye-tracking.
