Research interests

Emma Palmer-Cooper's research interests focus on cognitive neuropsychology and often intersect with mental-health.
Current research projects involve measuring metacognition using a variety of assessments, and the relationship with mood and anxiety in healthy adults and those experiencing psychosis and schizophrenia.

A more recent and still developing research area of interest is the nature of the relationship between pursuing creative activities and wellbeing in healthy adults and those diagnosed with a serious mental illness.
