Dr Jenny Richmond is a lecturer in the School of Psychology at UNSW. She has an international reputation in the rapidly growing field of developmental cognitive neuroscience, the study of how changes in the brain drive changes in cognitive capacity early in life. Dr Richmond’s research focuses on memory development during infancy and childhood and is funded by a Australian Research Council Discovery Grant. She uses converging methods (behavioural measures, eye tracking, and electrophysiology) to understand the development of memory functions that are known to depend on the hippocampus.
