Project title: Planning and health behaviour
Primary supervisor: Prof P Norman
Intention is the most proximal determinant of future behaviour in many models of health behaviour. However, there is a less-than-perfect relationship between people’s intention and their behaviour – the “intention-behaviour gap”. This project will examine the extent to which planning moderates intention-behaviour relations for various health-related behaviours (e.g., exercise, fruit and vegetable intake). Additional studies will examine the role of experimental measures of individual differences in planning ability (e.g., Tower of Hanoi) and working memory capacity with the aim of developing online planning measures that can used in conjunction self-report measures of intentions and behaviour.
Start date: 1 October 2017
Applicants must have a minimum of a first class or high upper second-class undergraduate honours degree and a distinction or high merit at Masters level in psychology or a related discipline.
