Key Research Interests and Expertise

Professor Coventry's main research interest is how different supposed 'modules' in the mind/brain map onto one another. This has been manifest in a long-standing interest in the relationship between language and the vision and action systems. His research on this topic has been continuously funded by external grants since 2001 (from the ESRC, AHRC, EPRSC, and European Commission). A second main research interest is how cognition and emotion interaction in decision making under conditions of uncertainty (specifically during gambling).
