Short Description of Institute: 

The Roehampton University, UK (RoU) dates back to the 1840s, as an educational institute in London, and became a university in its own right, with four colleges, in 2004. Roehampton University employs 1200 staff, and currently has around 8000 students registered on its programmes at all levels. The research team implicated in Toy Box is formed from members of the Clinical and Health Psychology Research Centre (CHPRC) within the School of Human and Life Sciences of Roehampton University. The centre’s research activities take place in custom-built laboratories newly equipped for psychophysiological (ECG, EDA, continuous blood pressure, etc.), nutritional (including hidden-balance eating monitors), developmental (including eye-tracking), neuropsychological and cognitive neuroscience (including state-of-the art EEG systems) methods. Members of the centre also share facilities provided by the School’s bioscience and sports physiology laboratories. For field research, the centre has a range of ambulatory testing equipment, and a comprehensive psychological test library.
