Dr Andrew Parton
Associate Dean (QA) - Senior Lecturer in Psychology


Having worked for 4-years as a programmer in a clinical chemistry research unit I returned to higher education. I gained a distinction in my ESRC-funded masters in Cognitive Science. My PhD at Surrey University examined the interaction of motion and binocular disparity information in the perception of depth. This was followed by post-doctoral work in projects at Imperial College, UCL, Southampton, Birkbeck College and Aston University. These posts developed my research interests to examine the cognitive effects of neurological conditions and basic neural mechanisms for encoding cognition. I joined Brunel in 2006 where I have further developed my research.
