Cognition, Brain & Behaviour

    Our brains and cognitive abilities develop from childhood through to old age. Research within this theme explores those changes, including developmental conditions, dementia and stroke patients as well as heathy adults and children and primates. Research spans from language to social cognition, including memory, motor control and body representation. A strong aspect of this theme is theoretical informed translational interventions, making use of state of the art multidisciplinary techniques such as robotics and virtual reality.
