Texting and the brain: The time-course of social brain activation in face-to-face versus text-based computer-mediated-communication (2023)
Journal Article
Sacristan, R., Royle, S., & Galpin, A. (2023). Texting and the brain: The time-course of social brain activation in face-to-face versus text-based computer-mediated-communication. #Journal not on list, 17(4), Article 3. https://doi.org/10.5817/CP2023-4-3

Through evolution, humans have adapted their interactions to face-to-face communication, supported by a network of neural systems which facilitate the transmission and interpretation of social signals for successful communication. However, emerging m... Read More about Texting and the brain: The time-course of social brain activation in face-to-face versus text-based computer-mediated-communication.

Pain catastrophising predicts alcohol hangover severity and symptoms (2020)
Journal Article
Royle, W., Owen, L., Roberts, D., & Marrow, L. (2020). Pain catastrophising predicts alcohol hangover severity and symptoms. Journal of Clinical Medicine, 9(1), 280. https://doi.org/10.3390/jcm9010280

Alcohol hangover is a cause of considerable social and economic burden. Identification of predictors of alcohol hangover severity have the potential to contribute to reductions in costs associated with both absenteeism/presenteeism and health care. P...

Decentering mediates the relationship between vmPFC activation during a stressor and positive emotion during stress recovery (2018)
Journal Article
Bendall, R., & Royle, S. (2018). Decentering mediates the relationship between vmPFC activation during a stressor and positive emotion during stress recovery. Journal of Neurophysiology, 120(5), 2379-2382. https://doi.org/10.1152/jn.00353.2018

The stress response has profound implications on health and behaviour and stress is considered a risk factor for the development of psychopathologies including depression. The neural mechanisms supporting successful stress recovery are not fully unde...

Testing the potential of combining functional near-infrared spectroscopy with different virtual reality displays - Oculus Rift and oCtAVE (2017)
Presentation / Conference
Landowska, A., Royle, W., Eachus, P., & Roberts, D. (2017, February). Testing the potential of combining functional near-infrared spectroscopy with different virtual reality displays - Oculus Rift and oCtAVE. Presented at International AR & VR Conference, Manchester, United Kingdom

The aim of this pilot study was to assess the pros and cons of combining mobile neuroimaging with two different styles of highly immersive displays: one that is worn on the head; and the other that is entered. Specifically wearable Functional Near In... Read More about Testing the potential of combining functional near-infrared spectroscopy with different virtual reality displays - Oculus Rift and oCtAVE.
