About the Author

My main field of research is Personality psychology. My research involves extending and clarifying current developments in personality psychology and critically assessing personality theories. I like to contribute to the theoretical frameworks that we use to develop accounts of personality through examining the underlying assumptions and drawing attention to critical issues relevant to all personality theories (e.g., the distinctions between description and explanations, and relations and the terms of relations). My research here also involves understanding what is meant by 'self' and 'identity', personality responses to serious health threats, the relation of personality to evolutionary psychology, personality and culture, neuroscience and personality, and the influence of attachment processes upon development. I also enjoy looking at the history of personality research (and of psychology generally). My own approach to personality favours a psychodynamic perspective and my central interests here include defense mechanisms (especially repression) and unconscious mental processes. My published research covers the neuroscientific debate surrounding Freudian dream theory, defense mechanisms, and whether repression can be a conscious process. The theory of Freudian repression has been attacked variously in the scientific literature but I have endeavoured to demonstrate that many critics of Freudian repression actually have very little understanding of what Freud had to say on the matter.

Our sense of vision is fundamental to our ability to interact with the world. Additionally, a great deal of our understanding of how the brain functions is based on our knowledge of how it processes visual information. The aim of my research is to further our understanding of the workings of the human visual system, with an emphasis on how various visual pathways interact at different levels in the brain. While I am interested in all aspects of visual processing, my research to date has mainly focused on motion, stereopsis and face processing

I joined the School in 2010 after 2.5 years working as a post-doctoral researcher in the Discipline of Paediatrics at the University of Adelaide. I currently teach into developmental psychology topics, cognitive neuroscience, sleep, memory and general psychology topics at an undergraduate level. I supervise Honours, Masters and PhD students in the School and across institutions. My research currently focuses on the importance of sleep for memory and cognitive performance, child mental health, critical periods of cognitive development, and the neural basis of cognitive functions. Together with Drs Hannah Keage and Owen Churches, I coordinate the new Cognitive Neuroscience laboratory which houses EEG and transcranial doppler facilities. I also collaborate with researchers at the Childrens Research Centre, University of Adelaide, at which I am an Affiliate Lecturer, and the Department of Neurology at the University of Rome (La Sapienza), Italy

Andrew is an Associate Professor in the School of Psychology and a clinical psychologist. He supervises Honours and higher degree students. Research interests: Infant, child and adolescent mental health,Developmental Psychopathology, Attachment theory, Evolutionary psychology,Psychoanalysis

Scientifically I am interested in understanding human intelligence and cognition. I tackle this central question from both psychological and biological perspectives (particularly using pharmacological methods). A significant part of this approach is to better understand the cognitive effects of a wide range of pharmacologically active substances ranging from illicit drugs to herbal and nutrient medicines. From a practical perspective I am interested in improving emotional competencies in organizations and in educational settings, particularly primary and secondary schools
