The Brain and Behaviour Lab is home to NUS psychology staff and students with an interest in the brain and its role for human and non-human animal behavior. Research areas include interval timing, interindividual communication, music, emotions and memory. These are explored using functional neuroimaging techniques such as electroencephalography (EEG), optical imaging (fNIRS/EROS), and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Additional insight are sought through assessing autonomic (e.g., heart rate) and hormonal markers (e.g., estrogen) as well as subject/participant behavior (e.g., accuracy/reaction times).

If you are interested in joining our lab as a research student, staff, or participant, please contact Annett Schirmer ( or Trevor Penney (
