All of the research I was involved with was more about pushing the frontiers of current knowledge and understanding, within an academic setting. I worked for a University rather than for a private lab or in industry. Typical ivory-tower academia. We were expanding models and building evidence mostly around “norm-based coding” of faces using behavioural experiments to hypothesise how the brain works.

There isn’t an immediate or tangible impact in a concrete way on the general public, or in a clinical sense. And the research did not help doctors, clients or people in any real way. Partly why I got tired of it. It seemed meaningless compared to other “more important” research looking for cures for diseases, or successful therapy strategies.
