This is a great opportunity for new and returning postgraduate students to learn more about the research currently taking place within the School of Psychology, as well as benefit from a number of talks designed to improve their skills as postgraduate students.


This year's conference will feature Dr Sam Wass of the University of East London and Dr Eoin O'Sullivan of the University of Stirling as our keynote speakers. Dr Sam Wass' talk, 'No man or woman is an island: studying how cognitive functions develop from an inter-personal perspective', will present research involving a variety of research techniques including dual physiological recordings and dual neuroimaging to explore early cognitive development through an inter-personal perspective. Dr Eoin O'Sullivan's talk will focus on the impact of science communication.


The conference will also feature presentations on various subject areas from PhD students and lecturers from Queen's, the titles of which can be found below.
