Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience

Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience Research Group

Cognitive and behavioural neuroscience is the scientific study of mental and behavioural processes using experimental paradigms from a range of areas in psychology and other multidisciplinary fields. Our researchers have expertise in several aspects of cognitive and behavioural neuroscience, ranging from theoretical approaches to more applied clinical neuroscience.
Current research aims to understand the various mechanisms underpinning higher order cognitive functions including mental imagery, mental practice, expertise, perception of faces, bodies and biological motion, attentional processes, executive functions, and the impact of nutrition on cognitive function. Our staff also have interests in developing research methods for advanced analyses including neuroimaging, high density EEG, and eye-tracking data.
