Prof Matthew Cobb

My laboratory studies how the sense of smell works. To do this we use a rather unusual animal - a maggot. You and I have about 4 million smell cells in our noses. A maggot has just 21, and by using genetics we can make a maggot with just a single smell cell in its nose. By studying the behaviour of these animals, and the electrical activity of their smell cells, we can understand how smells are processed in the nose and in the brain. Not only does a maggot have a brain, the bits of its brain that process smells are wired up just like ours.

I have completed an M.A. in cognitive psychology at Tel Aviv University, Israel, where I focused on memory mechanisms and specifically the distinction between short- and long-term memory. My Ph.D. work with Morris Moscovitch at the University of Toronto focused on emotional memory, specifically on cognitive mediators for enhanced memory for emotional material.

Prof Daniel Rigby

I have broad research interests but mainly focus on the relationships between economy, agriculture and the environment. 
A great deal of my recent work has involved choice and choice experiments. This has led to growing interest in psychology, economics and choice and also choice and plagiarism within Higher Education.
