Psychophysiological research uses objective physiological measures such as brain imaging to advance our understanding of psychological processes. Researchers across IPEP are employing state-of-the art psychophysiological techniques to provide a more comprehensive understanding of existing concepts and to generate new breakthroughs in knowledge across all of our core research specialisms.
