Research in the SoBA Lab explores how we perceive and interact with other agents in a social world, under the direction of Dr. Richard Ramsey & Professor Emily S. Cross
From old North Wales to New South Wales - the SoBA Lab is on the move!!
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!
Under the directorship of Dr. Richard Ramsey (Macquarie) and Prof. Emily Cross (Macquarie and Glasgow), research in the SoBA Lab explores how we perceive and interact with other people (and robots!) in a social world. Broadly speaking, SoBA Lab research falls within the domains of Social Cognition, Social Neuroscience and Cognitive Neuroscience. Our current and past research is funded by a number of national and international organizations, including the European Research Council, the Economic and Social Research Council, the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research, the Ministry of Defense, the Wellcome Trust, the European Commission, and Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol.
