Associate Professor Bronwyn Graham

Associate Professor

My research aims to identify the neurobiological causes of anxiety disorders, which are the most common class of mental illness in Australia, affecting 11% of men and almost twice as many women (18%) in a given year. A primary component of my research focuses on how sex hormones influence the development and treatment of anxiety disorders in women, with a view to develop sex-specific models of anxiety pathophysiology.

Professor Brett Hayes

Professor

Research Areas: My research focuses on the processes involved in “high-level” cognition; i.e. how people think, reason, categorize and make decisions.  In particular my research focuses on: a) categorisation and inductive reasoning in adults, b) memory development and c) relations between reasoning and memory.  My work in these areas involves both experimental investigation and the application of computational models.  I also have a long-standing interest in the development of children's eyewitness memory and the forensic applications of such research.
