Research interests

Janet's research interests are in cognitive psychology. She is currently interested in human reasoning, heuristics and biases, particularly individual differences in reasoning and relationships between magical thinking and evidence evaluation. 

Other interests include repetition priming, cognitive skill acquisition, ‘implicit’ memory and ‘implicit’ learning, memory illusions and directed forgetting, hemispheric differences in semantic priming, and the roles of prior knowledge in reasoning and categorisation.
