About Vincent

Vincent is primarily a developmental psychologist.  His research interests are firmly rooted in psychology but cover a range of multi-disciplinary interactions, especially with biology, medical imaging, obstetrics, pediatrics and physics. His research has included tackling problems in measuring the developing functional brain, understanding fetal behaviour, exploring perceptual and social development, and relations between motor-social-perceptual systems during development. Vincent explores these issues using a mix of brain and behaviour based experimental approaches.

Papers Taught

Research Supervised

I am happy to supervise Ph.D. students on developmental aspects of social cognition, perception and cognition up to and including the preschool years. I have a strong interest in perception in the fetus. I would also welcome discussions on research methodologies and developing populations.  Novel settings and applications of EEG/ERP such as paediatric epilepsy, and data from the field are also of interest.
