Visual crowding is unaffected by adaptation-induced spatial compression (2018)
Journal Article
Chambers, A. L., Roach, N. W., & Johnston, A. (2018). Visual crowding is unaffected by adaptation-induced spatial compression. Journal of Vision, 18(3), doi:10.1167/18.3.12. ISSN 1534-7362

It has recently been shown that adapting to a densely textured stimulus alters the perception of visual space, such that the distance between two points subsequently presented in the adapted region appears reduced (Hisakata, Nishida, & Johnston, 2016... Read More

Microstructural abnormalities in white and gray matter in obese adolescents with and without type 2 diabetes (2017)
Journal Article
Nouwen, A., Chambers, A. L., Chechlacz, M., Higgs, S., Blissett, J., Barrett, T., & Allen, H. A. (in press). Microstructural abnormalities in white and gray matter in obese adolescents with and without type 2 diabetes. NeuroImage: Clinical, 16, doi:10.1016/j.nicl.2017.07.004. ISSN 2213-1582

Aims/hypotheses. In adults, type 2 diabetes and obesity have been associated with structural brain changes, even in the absence of dementia. Some evidence suggested similar changes in adolescents with type 2 diabetes but comparisons with a non-obese... Read More

Relationship between parental feeding practices and neural responses to food cues in adolescents (2016)
Journal Article
Allen, H. A., Chambers, A. L., Blissett, J., Chechlacz, M., Barrett, T., Higgs, S., & Nouwen, A. (2016). Relationship between parental feeding practices and neural responses to food cues in adolescents. PLoS ONE, 11(8), doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0157037. ISSN 1932-6203

Social context, specifically within the family, influences adolescent eating behaviours and thus their health. Little is known about the specific mechanisms underlying the effects of parental feeding practices on eating. We explored relationships bet... Read More
