Debbie's primary research area is social perception and social cognition in neurodevelopmental disorders; largely focusing on Williams syndrome (WS) and Autism (ASD). Within this area she has used eye tracking and experimental tasks to explore areas of relative proficiency or deficit (exploring syndrome-specific signatures or cross-syndrome overlaps). Debbie has used face perception and the interpretion of social cues from faces as a method of exploring communication strategies and social behaviours / tendancies associated with these disorders.
