  • Professor Peter Wilson

    Over the past 18 years, I have coordinated two overlapping programs of research, supported by a number of large ARC grants: the first is in the field of motor and cognitive development, and the second on the use of virtual-reality technology in motor and cognitive rehabilitation, both in adult and child populations. With a body of over 70 peer-reviewed papers, both programs involve collaborations with a number of international scholars from the UK, USA and Europe, with the work stimulating the development of novel and innovative approaches to motor intervention. My teams are truly multi-disciplinary--I work closely with new media artists, scientists and clinicians in pursuit of new approaches to augmented therapy.

  • Associate Professor Kristin Laurens

    My primary research interests are in child and youth mental health. I conduct multi-disciplinary longitudinal research projects that use cognitive neuroscience and life-course epidemiology methods to characterise developmental pathways from childhood to diverse health, social, and educational outcomes in adolescence and young adulthood. I am motivated to identify new prevention and early intervention opportunities in childhood that promote successful development for all individuals, and I work with clinical colleagues and educational professionals to develop new prevention and intervention programs for young people. I am currently supported by an Australian Research Council Future Fellowship.

  • Dr Megan Louise Willis

    My primary research interests are in social cognition, emotion processing and cognitive neuropsychology. My research has focused on understanding the cognitive and neural mechanisms involved in processing emotional expressions and making social judgements. My research also aims to uncover the reasons why certain people have difficulties recognising the emotional expressions of others and using emotional expressions to guide their social judgements. My research has primarily employed cognitive neuropsychological, electrophysiological and behavioural techniques.

  • Dr Erin Conway

    Dr Erin Conway is a lecturer in Speech Pathology. Her current research interests include the evaluation of a communication training for carers of people with dementia, and exploring treatment efficacy of word-retrieval rehabilitation in progressive aphasia. Dr Conway is also interested in cognition and language processing in healthy aging and acquired neurological disorders (eg. stroke, Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's Disease) and the use of EEG methodology in the investigation of neurolinguistic processing.
