Cognition and Cognitive Neuroscience
The cognition subgroup explores core and applied areas of cognitive psychology (attention; eye movements; memory; and language); research explores how human performance changes with experience, using eye-tracking methodologies to record differences; research includes: the difference between experienced and less experienced readers; 1st and 2nd language users; differences between novice and experienced car drivers; the work on memory investigates the influence of emotional and threatening material upon recall and recognition; research uses eye-tracking to investigate the cognitive processes that are used to comprehend combinations of text and graphics (advertisements; photograph captions in newspapers; and figure captions in textbooks); research in vision ranges from traditional visual psychophysics to computational modelling, electrophysiology and brain scanning; the School of Psychology is particularly well resourced to carry out research in cognitive neuroscience, with facilities for electrophysiology, structural and functional brain imaging (MRI and fMRI), dense-sensor EEG recording in both human adults and infants, transcranial magnetic stimulation studies, and numerous systems for tracking eye, hand, and body movements online.
