Cognitive Development and Learning

Research into theory of mind, autism, learning and tutoring, extending into interdisciplinary and strategic research relevant to education and abnormal development. The group investigates how visual representations and teaching strategies influence the psychological processes that underlie learning; they are also exploring the boundaries of heightened visuo-spatial abilities in autism, and relating these to aspects of size and shape constancy, which have been found to be disrupted in autism.
