Research interests

I am interested in how humans think. As it turns out, language is integral to thinking. My research goal has been to understand the embedding of the language system in its broader context of a brain specialised for the goals of perception and action, rather than seeing language as an isolated modular system. This research has used behavioural measures, eye tracking and cognitive neuroscience methods, including fMRI, TMS and polysomnography.

Postgraduate supervision

Dr Lindsay welcomes applications in cognitive psychology, memory and language, cognitive neuroscience.

At the University of Hull, we run two research masters, a MSc, and an MRes. along with a PhD programme. Please contact me if you are interested in applying. We periodically have funded PhD scholarships from the University and the ERSC, which should be advertised nationally. Self-funded PhDs are welcome.

I am coordinator for the Research Assistantship Scheme and a supporter for undergraduate involvement in research. See here for some reasons you might be interested as an undergraduate. If you are an undergraduate who would like to join us and find out more about research, please contact me to apply. For students interested in working in the lab with me as a third year project supervisor, feel free to drop by or email to discuss any ideas for projects.

Current PhD supervisions:

- Andrew Lucas, ESRC Doctoral Training Pathway

- Eloise McCann (with with the Department of Music)
