Economic and Social Research Council’s Impact Awards 2018

Cutting edge research at the Behavioural Research Lab

20 June 2018

Brett Heasman, a PhD student at LSE’s Psychological and Behavioural Science Department, was awarded the Economic and Social Research Council’s (ESRC) Future Promise prize on 20 June 2018. The awards ceremony acknowledges researchers from a range of disciplines, whose work has had a meaningful impact on society or the economy.

The Future Promise prize recognises applicants whose research shows great promise and future potential for impact on society, in Brett’s case around insights into autistic people’s perspectives.

In collaboration with LSE’s Behavioural Research Lab, Brett’s research has helped to challenge public perceptions of autism and to facilitate understanding between people with autism and their families.

Professor Jennifer Rubin, Executive Chair of the ESRC commented: “The calibre of the candidates was very high, and the panel agreed to award this prize to Mr Heasman for the originality of his work and clear transformative potential.”

BRL Junior Week 2018

Behavioural Research Junior Week 2018 

May 2018

During 21 - 25 May 2018, BRL once again opened its doors to children to show what "behavioural research" looks like.

This time we showcased an electroencephalogram (EEG) headset, which illustrated ongoing brain activity when making certain decisions.

The day was successfully led by Dr Heather Kappes and involved over 200 pupils, and provided current LSE MSc students with the opportunity to gain practical experience.
