Laboratories

Babylab

Babylab

Children are little scientists. Join us on our journey to further research at one of the UK's most prominent Babylabs.

Aberrant Experience, Awareness, & Emotion Laboratory

Aberrant Experience, Awareness, & Emotion Laboratory

Research in the laboratory focuses on disorders in consciousness and aberrant experiences. These can include hallucinations, perceptual distortions and delusions. These experiences are often associated with neurological disorders and psychopathology.

Neuroscience of Speech Laboratory

Neuroscience of Speech Laboratory

Research in the laboratory focuses primarily on investigating the neural bases of speech communication. We are interested in studying how normal brains communicate, and also what goes wrong in the brains of people with speech and language impairments.

Cognition of Social Interaction (CoSI) Laboratory

Cognition of Social Interaction (CoSI) Laboratory

The CoSI Lab studies the cognitive basis for social interaction. In particular, we study the way in which people process others’ perspectives at various ages (from early childhood to late adulthood) from various cultures, and in various contexts (such as, when being a listener in a conversation versus being a passive observer).

Embodied Cognition Laboratory

Embodied Cognition Laboratory

We are interested in how people's linguistic, bodily and environmental experience shapes their mental representations and how this affects the way they process language and the world around them.

Emotion & Communication Laboratory

Emotion & Communication Laboratory

We are interested in how people process emotionally salient stimuli, e.g., how accurately do we recognise emotions from facial expressions? Is this ability affected by perceptual cues such as pleasant vs. sour or bitter taste, or individual differences such as ethnicity?

Word and Category Learning Laboratory

Word and Category Learning Laboratory

In our lab, we investigate how infants learn about objects and categories in their environment, and how early language contributes to and shapes this learning.
