We are a group of researchers based at Birkbeck, University of LondonCity, University of London, Goldsmiths, University of London, University of Reading and King’s College London, trying to better understand how people recognise faces and understand expressions. In particular, we are interested how these abilities can be disrupted in developmental prosopagnosia, autism and alexithymia. If you think you might have either of these conditions, and would like to find out more about our research, we would be absolutely delighted to hear from you.
