Professor Bruce Hood


I am interested in cognitive development from a neuroscience perspective. My research interests include; face and gaze processing; inhibitory control of thoughts and actions; Spatial representation and action; naive theories; The origin of adult magical reasoning from children?s natural intuitions. Many of my current interests in the origins of supernatural beliefs are contained in my forthcoming book, ?SuperSense: Why We Believe the Unbelievable? which is to be published in April 2009 by HarperOne.
