Our research focuses on how we perceive and act on the world around us. We have a broad range of interests spanning high-level cognitive acts such as communication and language-use to low level visual and auditory perception (for more information, please see the specific Research Areas listed below). Our research is internationally recognized and has been judged to be among the strongest in experimental psychology in the UK.
