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.
