Downing Lab

Welcome to Paul Downing's Cognitive Neuroscience lab at Bangor University!


For nearly 20 years we have been investigating the organisation of visual processes in the mind and brain, using behavioural, fMRI, TMS, and ERP methods. A particular focus is on understanding how we perceive other people. Our lab is based in the excellent School of Psychology at Bangor University. Here we benefit from a large group of wonderful colleagues, many with shared interests. We are housed in the lovely Brigantia Building, which is extensively equipped for cognitive neuroscience research, and we are surrounded by the beautiful north Wales landscape.
