Cognition and Brain Sciences
Our research investigates fundamental human cognitive processes such as attention, language, memory, and emotion. We do this using a combination of behavioural experiments, neuroimaging, and computer modelling. Behavioural experiments help us understand how these processes work at all ages and how they become disrupted in disease and disorder. Neuroimaging helps us study the brain mechanisms underlying human cognition. Where possible, we use our discoveries to improve human health and well-being from childhood through to older age, for example by developing new treatments for clinical disorders of cognition and mental health.
