Dr Toby Nicholson

Visiting Research Associate


I am working as a Visiting Postdoctoral Research Associate on an ESRC funded project with Professor David Williams investigating the link between Metacognition and Mindreading in Autism Spectrum Disorder. The project will examine the extent to which (i) these two abilities have the same underlying basis, (ii) individuals with ASD show diminished metacognition.

Research interests

My research interests include Social cognition, Social neuroscience, Mindreading, Metacognition, Action prediction and Moral psychology.
