Cognitive Neuroscience Research Group

Cognitive Neuroscience

The Cognitive Neuroscience research group is based in the Department of Psychology at Liverpool Hope University. We are a small group who study the brain mechanisms of cognitive functions. We carry out basic research in areas such as perception, emotion, and memory, as well as studying more applied topics such as neuroaesthetics and prosthetic limb control.

To investigate the neural basis of cognitive functions, we mainly use human encephalography (EEG) recordings to derive event-related potentials (ERPs) that are time-locked to an experimental event. We also employ functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) and eye-tracking to provide data about on-going neural and behavioural responses.

Our research is fully integrated into the teaching curriculum, specifically in the MSc Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging course, and in the undergraduate Cognitive Neuroscience third-year optional course. We currently have two PhD students in our group.

We are affiliated with the Liverpool Neuroscience Group.
