Research in our lab focuses on emotions, empathy, and autism.

We use a range of techniques that include functional MRI, psychophysiology, psychophysics, and eye-gaze tracking to address our research questions. We are based at the Centre for Integrative Neuroscience and Neurodynamics, within the School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences, University of Reading.

Our lab is part of the Berkshire Autism Research Network and the Reading Emotions team.  We collaborate closely with the Cambridge Autism Research Centre, and several other groups within and outside the UK.

Our research is supported by several funding bodies including the Medical Research Council, Leverhulme Trust, Economic and Social Research Council, Felix Foundation, and Autism Speaks.
