Professor Peter Rendell is director of the Cognition and Emotion Research Centre at Australian Catholic University. The centre conducts experimental psychology research in the field of cognitive and neuropsychology. He has a focus on cognitive ageing with a particular interest in prospective memory (memory for future intentions such as keeping appointments and taking medication) and episodic future thinking (ability to imagine future events and show foresight). He is also interested in memory in various other groups including autism, chronic heart failure and substance users. In addition, he is currently investigating emotional processing and social cognition in older adults and various clinical groups.

My research interests are predominantly focussed on the interplay between cognition and psychological disorders. My PhD investigated cognitive risk factors for depression(specifically rumination and thought suppression)in females. I am currently involved in a number of projects investigating the neurocognitive impact of concussion. Those projects include the development and assessment of a test battery to assess neurocognitive deficits and facilitate training to aid in recovery. I am also interested in all aspects of memory, as well as scale development and validation.
