PHD Student

Grace Hayes is currently completing a combined Master of Clinical Psychology and PhD. Her research focuses on social cognition (the mental processes behind social behaviours) in healthy ageing. Grace is interested to find out if the hormone oxytocin plays a role in the decline of these skills with age, and whether administering oxytocin via a nasal spray improves the social cognitive performance of older adults.
