Professor of Cognitive Neuropsychology
Professor Rogers studies the health aspects of consumer behaviour; in particular, the supply-side and psychological and neurobiological mechanisms that make people vulnerable to the psychological harms associated with excessive or unhealthy patterns of consumption, and how we might better treat them. Specifically, he uses laboratory, survey and field methodologies to study emotional (e.g. mood variability) and cognitive (e.g. risk-attitudes) factors that influence the way that people evaluate gambling (including on the Internet), gaming, drinking and eating behaviour. Professor Rogers is a Chartered Psychologist (with the British Psychological Society), has published widely in psychological, clinical and neuroscience journals, is a Fellow of the Learned Society of Wales and an (regional) assistant editor for the International Journal of Gambling Studies.
