Professor of Cognitive Psychology
Mark is a Professor of Cognitive Psychology at the University of Leeds. He is a psychologist and studies the use of visual information and the control of human action. His research explores hand movements (kinematics) in children with and without neurodevelopmental problems. This work has led him to promote the importance of perceptual-motor education within primary schools – the idea that teaching children fundamental perceptual-motor skills will benefit their physical and mental health as well as their ultimate educational outcome.
