Abstract: Faces and voices convey much of the non-verbal information that we use when communicating with other people. We look at faces and listen to voices to recognise others, understand how they are feeling, and decide how to act. Recent research in my lab aims to investigate whether there are similar coding mechanisms to represent faces and voices, and whether there are brain regions that integrate this information across the visual and auditory modalities. ...

In the Centre for Attention Learning and Memory (CALM) weadopt a novel transdiagnostic approach to illuminating the cognitive, neural and behavioural dimensions of specific learning difficulties. In this talk I will present an overview of the CALM clinic and discuss two approaches to identifying the cognitive dimensions of learning problems in literacy and maths.

Touch: A unique sensory system. Not just a 'general' but a special sense. There is so much yet to know about touch, so let's find out some more. The aim of the first workshop, "Researchers IN Touch" is to start a conversation, to support each other in gaining research funding for, experimenting on, and writing about touch.

NEB2019 is a one-day symposium focused on Neuroscience of Energy Balance. The symposium is designed to provide Early Career Researchers with an opportunity to meet other ECRs in this field, and both present and discuss their work with their peers. NEB2019 is being organised by ECRs based at the University of Manchester, as the Young Life Scientists’ Symposium.
