The Developmental Group at the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience focuses on the development of social cognition and decision-making in adolescence. Our research involves a variety of behavioural (psychophysics, eye-tracking, motion capture) and neuroimaging (MRI, fMRI and MEG) methods. We are based at the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience in Queen Square, London, UK.
