Martin Jüttner, Dip. Phys., PhD (Senior Lecturer) – Current research interests: the development of object recognition in children, visual learning and categorization.
The following members of staff regularly teach on this course and can be approached to supervise the dissertation research project during the course (availability may vary from year to year).
Adrian Burgess, PhD (Professor) – Current research interests: neural correlates (e.g., EEG activity patterns) of consciousness, functional connectivity, the effect of mobile telephones on the brain.
Luc Boutsen, BSc, MSc, PhD (Lecturer) – Research interests are in the psychology and cognitive neuroscience of visual cognition: shape, object, and face recognition; visual attention; categorisation; neuropsychology of deficits in visual cognition.
Sarah Carrington, BA, MSc, DPhil (Lecturer) – Research interests include Autism Spectrum Disorder and social cognition, focusing on both the behavioural profile and associated brain activity and structure (using fMRI and DTI).
Paul Furlong, MPhil, PhD (Professor) – Research interests include functional neuroimaging, epilepsy and sensory-motor pathway function in health and disease. Committed to developing humane clinical research techniques in Neuroscience.
Charlotte Hartwright, BSc, MRes, PhD (Lecturer) – Research interests: Social Cognition and Numerical Cognition, in conjunction with neuropsychological and behavioural testing as well as fMRI and sMRI; experience in developmental and longitudinal neuroimaging.
Stefanie Hassel, BSc, PhD (Lecturer) – Research interests include neurophysiological correlates (as measured by MEG, fMRI and DTI) of emotion perception, emotion regulation and social cognition in psychiatric disorders.
Carol Holland, BSc, PhD, CPsychol, AFBPsS (Reader) – Current interests include memory and cognition in ageing, autobiographical memory, cognitive factors in driving, and pedestrian behaviour.
Klaus Kessler, Dip. Psych., PhD (Professor) – Current research interests: the use of MEG measures (evoked responses, oscillations, and synchronisation) as well as behavioural methods to investigate visual working memory, selective attention, the mirror system, and embodied (social) cognition.
Tim Meese, BSc, PhD (Professor) – Research interests: spatial vision, complex motion, the binding problem.
Liz Moores, BA, PhD, CPsychol (Reader) – Current research interests include dyslexia and visual attention.
Nathan Ridout MA, MSc, PhD (Senior Lecturer) – Research Interests: cognition and emotion; emotional processing in psychiatric disorders, autobiographical memory, processing of emotional faces.
Brian Roberts, MA, PhD (Professor) – Research in the auditory perception laboratory employs a variety of psychophysical techniques to investigate the cues used by the human auditory system for perceptual grouping and scene analysis.
Cristina Romani, BSc, MA, PhD (Reader) – Current research interests include aphasia, acquired dysgraphia, developmental dyslexia and models of short-term memory.
Carl Senior, BSc, MSc, Ph.D (Reader) – Current research interests are in social cognitive neuroscience.
Laura Shapiro, BSc, PhD (Senior Lecturer) – Research interests: reading development, categorisation, concept development.
Stefano Seri, MD, (Professor) – Research Interests: 1) neurophysiological mechanisms underlying transient cognitive impairment in patients with epilepsy 2) mechanisms of language and social impairment in patients with pervasive developmental disorders, with emphasis on sensory processing and genetic correlates.
Joel Talcott, BS, PhD (Professor) – Current research interests include: cognitive neuroscientific and behavioural genetic approaches to the aetiology of reading and language disorders and neuroimaging of individual differences in task-elicited cognitive activity.
Caroline Witton, BSc, PhD (Reader) – Research interests include auditory processing, especially acoustic modulation perception and binaural hearing, by normal listeners and in clinical populations. Also, research into the acquisition of phonological and language skills, and into developmental disorders such as dyslexia.
