To increase understanding of the health benefits of self-compassion in the context of chronic illness and other long-term health conditions

Current theory indicates that the self-kindness, common humanity, and mindfulness components of self-compassion can foster adaptive responses to the perceived setbacks and shortcomings that people experience in the context of living with a chronic illness. Read more

Self-organisation as a theory of brain development

Self-organisation is a general theory of how function is assigned to cortical microcircuits. The theory predicts that a balance between cooperative and competitive interactions in local cortical circuits, consolidated by Hebbian learning, results in similar inputs being represented by nearby neurons.

The synthetic littermate project: How do natural experiences shape the functional organisation of the developing brain?

How do natural experiences shape the functional organisation of the developing brain? To address this question directly, we have been developing a novel robotic technology - the synthetic littermate (or ’surrogate’). Read more

Using psychology to improve sleep

Sleep underpins many of the functions necessary for everyday living (Hafner, Stepanek, Taylor, Troxel & van Stolk, 2017). However, increasing economic and social demands mean that we are rapidly evolving into a 24-hour society (Rajaratnam and Arendt, 2001). Read more

Examining the extent to which planning moderates intention-behaviour relations for various health-related behaviours

Intention is the most proximal determinant of future behaviour in many models of health behaviour. However, there is a less-than-perfect relationship between people’s intention and their behaviour – the “intention-behaviour gap”. Read more

Habit and health behaviour: to examine the impact of habit strength on a range of health-related behaviours

Past behaviour is typically found to be the strongest predictor of future behaviour. When this occurs it is usually taken to reflect the operation of habits – i.e., learned sequences of acts that have become automatic responses to specific cues. Read more

The experiences and patterns of use of psychoactive substance use amongst the homeless population.

Applications are invited for a self-funded PhD Studentship. Homelessness is a reality and can be characterized as a global problem; with complex the links between social and health problems. Read more
