Professor Eddie Harmon-Jones

Professor

Research Areas: My lab studies the interplay of motivation, emotion, and cognition, employing social and affective neuroscience approaches. We investigate topics such as the effects of emotions on attention and other cognitive processes; the role of emotion and motivation in aggressive and pro-social behaviour; and the antecedents and consequences of discrepancies between cognitions (cognitive dissonance theory).

Professor Brett Hayes

Professor

Research Areas: My research focuses on the processes involved in “high-level” cognition; i.e. how people think, reason, categorize and make decisions.  In particular my research focuses on: a) categorisation and inductive reasoning in adults, b) memory development and c) relations between reasoning and memory.  My work in these areas involves both experimental investigation and the application of computational models.  I also have a long-standing interest in the development of children's eyewitness memory and the forensic applications of such research.
