James Moore is a Lecturer with the Department of Psychology at Goldsmiths, University of London and a visiting Research Fellow at the University of Bristol. James research aims to understand the neurocognitive processes supporting the experience of human action. He uses a range of methods and approaches including patient studies, psychopharmacology, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and functional neuroimaging (fMRI). Of particular interest is human ‘agency’, the capacity to intentionally modify one’s environment to satisfy one’s goals. The experience, or sense, of agency is deeply entwined with our everyday notions of freedom and responsibility. Moreover, certain psychiatric and neurological disorders are characterized by disturbances in this experience.
