Research in the carrot capital

The School of Psychology at Massey University has recently recruited two new academics with experimental social psychology and social neuroscience expertise. Dr Ute Kreplin has joined us from Coventry University and Dr Aaron Drummond will arrive in January from Flinders University.

To celebrate these new appointments our group has spent three days in New Zealand’s carrot capital Ohakune. Ohakune is in the foothills of Mt Ruhapehu (Mt Doom and part of Mordor from the Lord of the Rings movies).

During this meeting we planned an exciting social cognition and experimental psychology pathway through the major in Psychology at Massey University that takes you from the first lecture all the way through to postgraduate. Looking forward to telling you more soon.

Ohakune is a beautiful place to visit. We fitted in some short walks through the native Beech forests and enjoyed the Ohakunefresh mountain air.

About Pakiri Lab

Most human behaviour relates to emotion: either being influenced by emotions, resulting in emotions, or both. At Pakiri Lab we research these experiences using a range of psychophysiological lab based techniques, such as facial muscle activity and heart activity.
