Who are we?

The Perception, Action and Decision Making (PAD) group undertakes cutting-edge research into how the human brain supports cognition, perception and action, and how these key abilities may be affected in neurological and psychiatric disorders. We bring together researchers with expertise in a range of tools and approaches, including functional/structural brain imaging, psychophysics, human electrophysiology, virtual reality, eye tracking, and computational modelling.
