Jeff teaches on the psychology courses and he is primarily involved in teaching statistics, cognitive psychology with a focus on language, and psychopathology. Jeff currently teaches on the following modules:
- PSY4032 Introduction to Research Methods and Statistics
- PSY6016 Psychology Dissertation
- PSY5047 Neuropsychology
- PSY7051 Advanced Research Methods in Forensic Psychology
- PSY7054 Brain and Cognition
- PSY7057 Psychology Dissertation
Abigail Jones – Examining the effect of statistics anxiety in undergraduate students. This project will use a mixed methods approach to look in more depth at the causes of students’ anxiety towards statistics.
Jeff also has funding for two further PhD students:
- One project will be examining aspects of statistics anxiety.
- The second project will look at how we comprehend implicit meaning during reading using a variety of eye tracking and EEG measures.
