Research with Adults

Our brains and behaviour continue to develop throughout life. As such, research into brains and cognition must include changes and developments experienced in later life. We investigate a wide variety of topics, ranging from language and face processing to working memory and attention. Specific examples include:

  • Which auditory processes contribute to individual differences in language development and learning?
  • What is the relationship between rhythmic skills and reading ability? 
  • How does musical experience influence auditory and language processing?
