Research in a broad range of issues including visual motion processes, emotion and memory, and the visual processing in dyslexic, autistic and neurological populations.
Our research examines (1) the development of motor, behavioural and cognitive processes, and (2) the social psychological processes affecting interpersonal, intergroup and interspecies attitudes, cognition, emotion, and behaviour.
ARIC’s mission is to create a diverse and inclusive environment where community knowledge and academic expertise merge to produce evidence-based innovative professional approaches and services for enriching the lives of autistic people and those who support them throughout their lifespan.
The Psychology Labs in the Sarah Swift building are used by the School of Psychology for research projects in areas such as forensic psychology, perception and cognition, development and social behaviour, and autism.
Students have access to equipment such as a dynamic 3D body scanner, an eye-tracker, Psychophysics, Molecular lab, and driving simulator to use in their both their own research as well as at a postgraduate level as part of one of the many research groups in the school.
The labs are located in the new Sarah Swift building and are available as learning environments for students on the Psychology, Clinical Psychology, Forensic Psychology, Developmental Psychology and Research Methods courses.
