Dr Andrew K. Dunn

I am an Experimental Psychologist and Senior Lecturer, in the Department of Psychology at Nottingham Trent University. He is the Group lead for the Person Perception, Memory and Social Cognition group.

My view is that humans have evolved as social animals - we are biology in a physical and social world.  I am especially interested in the functional mechanisms of perception, attention and memory from both a theoretical and a practical standpoint. I think context is very important in this regard. I try to apply cognitive and evolutionary theory, and methods to understanding them.

My primary research interests are in person perception and my work has largely focused on the processing of perceptual signals (e.g. face, voice, smell, body shape/size and gait) in relation to identity, attractiveness, health, dominance and criminality, as well as issues relating attention capture of, and memory recall for, perceptual objects and location. I am also working on issues relating to visual information for motor action (e.g. walking, grasping, coordination and navigation), and developmental cognition (maths anxiety, attentional processing in dyslexia, and SEN). I am also interested in visual & auditory illusions (underlying mechanisms, effects and applications).
