Darren Burke


I am an Associate Professor in the School of Psychology, based at the Ourimbah campus of the University of Newcastle. I am an Experimental Psychologist, interested in the evolution of Visual, Spatial and Social abilities. Understanding how these various behavioural mechanisms evolved involves integrating data derived from studies in humans and non-humans and from research examining the neural, cognitive and social determinants of the abilities.
