Risk Analysis, Social Processes and Health
Research includes a range of basic and applied topics including emotion, violence, blood donation, public perceptions of new biotechnology, nuclear waste and the environment, and judgmental forecasting. The group is interested in understanding human decision making processes in relation to judgements about risk and health and safety issues. This involves applying theoretical models in applied settings (NHS hospital staff, private sector industry, patient groups) and conducting fundamental experimental work (gambling tasks; implicit attitudes); of particular theoretical interest to this group is the role played by emotions (Damasio's somatic markers hypothesis; appraisal tendencies hypothesis; attributional accounts; risk-as-feelings hypothesis); contextual variables (cueing; priming) and individual differences (normal personality; abnormal personality; and health anxiety).
