    Research Interests

    Dr Cathy Craig is a professor of Perception and Action Psychology and Director of the state of the art Movement Innovation Lab at Queen’s University Belfast. Her cutting-edge research is primarily concerned with how sensory information, picked up by the brain, is subsequently used to guide all kinds of action. She uses this knowledge to develop innovative interventions that help improve movement performance in different groups of people (e.g. older adults, people with Parkinson’s disease, children with autism). The caliber of her work has been recognized through the award of a prestigious ERC (European Research Council) grant, reserved for the very best scientists in Europe. This funding has allowed her to test how different types of multi-sensory virtual environments can be used to improve movement performance in sport and health related contexts.
