Applied Sciences Groups
The University's School of Applied Sciences has the following Research Groups:
Brain Mind and Behaviour
Head: Dr Elisa Carrus
Research in cognitive neuroscience is becoming increasingly important. The Brain Mind and Behaviour Research Group is using LSBU’s newly set up Electroencephalography (EEG) lab, in combination with behavioural (performance and eye-tracking) and physiological (e.g. heart rate, galvanic skin response) measures, to gain new insights into the fine grained neural mechanisms of cognition and thus, enable the development of more accurate predictive models of behaviour.
Head: Dr Jamie Smith-Spark
The group investigates the development of neurotypical and non-neurotypical cognition from infancy into adulthood. Members have expertise and research interests in autism, developmental dyslexia, developmental coordination disorder, specific language impairment and William’s Syndrome and will work to explore the impact of these conditions on executive functions, numerical cognition, and a range of memory systems.
Food, Nutrition and Health
Head: Dr Adam Cunliffe
This Group will innovate in food product and nutraceutical development and the use of nutritional strategies to enhance human well-being, as well as the evaluation of their effects.Members have expertise in nutrition, health and food science (food composition, innovation, product development, functional foods and food safety).
Lived Experiences of Distress
Head: Prof. Paula Reave
This group researches lived experiences of mental distress, centring on how individuals interpret, embody, manage and live with mental health challenges. An integral part of these investigations is the examination of professional relationships and identities of staff and service users, in the context of delivering interventions, as well as the use of innovative methodologies, including action research and visual methods.
Psychology and Pedagogy
Head: Dr Janice Brown
This group brings together staff with expertise in various fields of psychology to research the numerous hurdles Higher Education students face in terms of engagement, satisfaction, progression, and retention. The group aims to produce enhancements to the teaching and learning provision for students across multiple disciplines, based on rigorous, empirical research.
