The Bayliss lab research aspects of social-cognitive processing, in particular interactions between attention, emotion and action in social contexts.

We currently have a Leverhulme Trust grant to examine the mechanisms underpinning shared attention. Other current research topics include: face perception, eye gaze processing, objects in social interactions (e.g. personal property) and individual differences in attention.
