Speaker: Dr. Spencer Hayes, University College London. Autism spectrum disorder is a neurodevelopmental condition characterised by differences in restricted, repetitive patterns of behaviour, interests or activities, and persistent deficits in social communication and social interaction. In addition to these core characteristics, it is well reported that autistic people show differences in sensorimotor functioning - such as gait, motor planning, and imitation. Whilst autistic people can imitate the goal of the action (e.g., to pick up a cup), it has been…Find out more »

Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience research group meeting. Speaker: Dr Samantha Brooks. Title: Learning from the neural correlates of Anorexia Nervosa about how we might treat Substance Use Disorder. The rising trend of internationally competitive research into the cognitive control of impulsivity reflects the importance of examining the neural mechanisms of impulse control. The rising trend might be due to impulse control deficits contributing substantially to the increase in serious mental and physical disorders that are prevalent globally. Impulse control, the tendency…Find out more »
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. ...Find out more »
