Dr Robert Bendall

I am an experimental psychologist conducting research in affective science – an interdisciplinary field seeking to understand affective and emotional processes. Adopting a range of methodological approaches including behavioural experiments, neuroscientific techniques, and psychometric questionnaires, my research is currently focussed on the following main themes:

  • the influence of emotion and affective stimuli on visual attention (e.g., visual search and change detection)
  • the impact of individual differences including emotion regulation and personality traits on visual attention
  • the relationships between affect, emotion regulation and sleep

Postgraduate Research Supervision Interests 

Applications are welcomed from potential postgraduate research students (MSc by Research and PhD) within the fields of affective science, cognitive psychology, visual attention, emotion regulation, sleep and cognitive neuroscience.
