The Social Brain in Action Lab is based jointly within the Psychology and Cognitive Science departments at Macquarie University in sunny Sydney, Australia, and also at the University of Glasgow's Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology in bonnie Scotland. We also continue to have several wonderful PhD students and collaborators working on projects at Bangor University in North Wales. So whether you like your social neuroscience hot and dry, or cool and damp, we have you covered!

Andrew smashed his viva in record time and is now ready to party. Well done Andrew! 


Many thanks to his examiners - Cosimo Urgesi and Kami Koldewyn.

'Tis the season for a bumper crop of brilliant and bold PhD completions! In the past month, both Katie and Te-Yi have aced their vivas, impressing their examiners (and the lab!) with all-star performances, and each passing their dissertation defenses with minor corrections! Well done, Katie and Te-Yi! We're not done yet with 2022 PhD completions in the SoBA Lab... watch this space for good news of further completions to come!

Three cheers for the one and only Ionela Bara, whose outstanding research was just honoured with the Experimental Psychology Society's President's Poster Commendation Prize at the EPS meeting in Keele! Ionela's poster, titled 'How does art training impact judgements of artworks?', features a brilliant new study supervised by Rich, with Emily as a collaborator- a wonderful SoBA Lab collaboration! We are so proud of you, Ionela!
