  (BBSRC DTP) A new animal test of emotional cognition
  Dr J Gigg, Dr D Talmi, Prof J Neill
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will create and implement a new animal test for emotional biases in attention and memory that is more closely linked with the impact that emotion has on the same functions in humans.
  How our emotion affects cognition: From neuroscience, lifespan and psychendocrinological perspectives
  Dr M Sakaki
Applications accepted all year round
There is no doubt that emotion and stress affect human cognitive processing, such as memory, attention and decision making. However, the exact effects of emotion on cognition are still unclear as emotion sometimes enhances cognitive processing but sometimes impairs cognitive processing.

  Dr J Honisch
Applications accepted all year round
Our Social Cognition and Movement Rehabilitation Lab (SCMR) investigates various topics on the role of non˗verbal behaviours in everyday conversations, social-cognitive effects of interpersonal synchrony (two or more individuals moving together in time) and explores movement interventions (e.g.

  Individual differences in cognitive and affective control - examining the mechanisms underlying cognition-emotion interaction and successful emotion regulation.
  Dr D Asioli
Applications accepted all year round
Individuals vary greatly in how well they can regulate their emotions, and difficulties in emotion regulation have been linked to disorders such as depression.
  The development of flexible cognition in children and adults
  Dr D Carroll
Applications accepted all year round
The ability to switch flexibly between different rules is a crucial skill that emerges gradually during the preschool and early school years, and underpins many more complex behaviours.

  Longitudinal study design to efficiently estimate biomarker change-point outcomes and time-to-change-point
  Dr S White, Dr B Tom
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
It is common to make longitudinal observations, repeated measurements over time, of biomarkers (and other covariates). Rather than smoothly changing over time, some biomarkers may exhibit sharp changes in their behaviour; a change-point is an identifiable shift in the long-run biomarker level.
  The role of causality and a sense of agency in social cognition (BaylissAU19PSY)
  Dr A Bayliss
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
