New Unit on Psychophysiological Methods

DSC

Pleased to say we have a new unit up and running for next year on psychophysiological methods in educational research. This 10 credit ¬†unit will involve learning how to measure of autonomic and somatic nervous system response (e.g. skin conductance, skin temperature, heart rate and respiratory rate). You’re encouraged to design your own small-scale pilot experiment for the assignment. At the moment, the max number of students we can take on the unit will depend on lab resources….currently being negotiated!!

Embodied Cognition Meeting Edinburgh

Picture shows me with Emma Cook who manages the exhibitions at At-Bristol – we had many creative conversations about how understanding about embodiment might be applied in science exhibitions……Move2Learn Edinburgh
