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
The Social Brain in Action Lab is based within the School of Psychologcal Sciences at Macquarie University and the MARCS Institute for Brain, Behaviour & Development at Western Sydney University in sunny Sydney, Australia, and also at the University of Glasgow's Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology in bonnie Scotland. We also have several wonderful PhD students and collaborators continuing to work 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!

We held our annual SoBA Lab Social Equality check -in meeting on 30 June, during which discussions topics (and shared resources) ranged from women in science to diversifying public outreach efforts/widening access, to the connections between America's recent restrictions on women's rights and the abolition of slavery. Check out our social equality page for a synopsis of this year's discussion, as well as links to articles & resources discussed.
