Projects per year
Members of the Social Cognition Research Group use primarily experimental behavioural and neuroimaging methods to investigate how cognition interacts with social factors in order to shape human judgment and behaviour, both in interpersonal and intergroup contexts.
Making use of our extensive laboratory facilities (including Electroencephalogram, eye-tracking), academics in this group are exploring how people understand and respond to other individuals; for example, by processing what others are paying attention to or by understanding what others think or believe. Others are working at the forefront of research into how cognitive, emotional and motivational factors modulate prejudiced responses to other groups. Members of the group work also at the intersection of social psychology with developmental and applied issues in psychology.
