Professor Tony J. Simon kindly visited our School from the MIND Institute & Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at University of California, Davis last week and gave a great talk on pediatric cognitive neuroscience and neurodevelopmental disorders. Tony’s talk was followed by a social event with drinks and dinner. Tony started his academic journey from the University of Central Lancashire as a Psychology student of (what was then) Preston Polytechnic.

Congratulations to Dr. Pamela Qualter for organising a fantastic seminar on loneliness on Friday 4th June 2016 at the School of Psychology, University of Central Lancashire. Professor Christina Victor kindly visited us from Brunel University in London, discussed with the team about research in loneliness and gave a fantastic talk on loneliness in the old age. Christina’s presentation was followed by a social event with drinks and dinner. This event was of great interest to staff and students alike and highlighted the importance of studying loneliness from a lifespan perspective.
