  • 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.
