Lateral hypothalamus as a visual centre controlling arousal, autonomic function and reflex behaviours

In addition to supporting our conscious perception of the world around us, light and visual stimuli exert wide ranging effects on animal physiology and behaviour via hard-wired ‘reflexes’ which range from simple effects of light on sleep, alertness and neuroendocrine function to the avoidance of rapidly approaching objects.

Interbrain dynamical functions for anticipating synchronisation under mutual interactions

How can we communicate with other members of society and synchronise our motion in real-time? Crucial to a sense of communication is the ability to entrain perceptually with other members of society, i.e., to be able to follow and to lead, while maintaining individual autonomy. Read more

Fluency and Context in Recognition Memory

This project relates to a sort of ‘memory illusion’. On a recognition memory test, increasing the perceptual fluency of a test cue increases the likelihood that the word will be endorsed as ‘familiar’, even if it hasn’t been seen in the study phase (and therefore should have been called ‘new’).

Identifying genomic causes of autism in adults and the impact on day-day life

Autism is a neurodevelopmental condition in which there are combinations of features such as impaired social-emotional reciprocity during interactions and impaired non-verbal communication. The cause of autism is complex, and is thought to be due to combinations of genetic and environmental factors. Most research has focussed on children.

When people do two or more things at the same time, i.e. multitasking, they usually become slower and make more errors. One reason for this might be that multitasking demands additional control processes which coordinate the concurrent performance of two tasks. Read more

The working and social climate for the majority of people in UK has changed dramatically in recent months. Adapting to online working and socializing has added to the sources of potential stress in our lives. Read more

Inhibition and Excitation in the brain

An appropriate balance between excitatory and inhibitory neural processes in the brain underlies healthy psychological function. Two examples of conditions in which there is an imbalance are autism and ADHD. Read more
