Professional Biography

Dr G Neil Martin is a Life Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and the author of over 13 books on psychology and the brain, including the UK’s market-leading introductory text, Psychology (Pearson Education) now in its 5th edition. He wrote Europe’s first general textbook on human neuropsychology (Human Neuropsychology, 2e, Prentice Hall) also available in Polish, Greek and Italian, the first monograph on the brain and chemoreception (The Neuropsychology of Smell & Taste, Psychology Press) and co-authored Europe’s first customisable on-line course in introductory psychology, MyPsychLab (Pearson Education). He contributed the neuroanatomy of flavour entry to the 2nd edition of The Oxford Companion to Food.

He researches in the areas of the psychology of smell and taste and published the first study of the effect of food aroma on brain activity, in 1998, finding that the aroma of chocolate consistently reduced one particular brain frequency.  He has written over 150 academic and popular articles on psychology; his journalism includes writing for The Observer, The Times, Restaurant Magazine, Deadpan, and THES. He has been Director of the Human Olfaction Laboratory, Secretary of the British Psychophysiology Society, Associate Editor of The Psychologist, Assistant Editor of Deadpan, the UK’s first magazine dedicated to comedy, and is an editorial board member of the Annals of Improbable Research, the organisation which awards the annual IgNobel prizes.

He has given invited lectures and talks to the Royal Institution, the RSA,  London International Confectioners Society, and  the Institute of Cultural Research, is a founding member of British Institute for Humour Research in 2009, and has been Panel Reviewer for the Wellcome Arts Awards, and the SciArts awards (Wellcome Trust), as well as grant reviewer for the BBSRC and ESRC and other bodies.  In 2009, Martin was part of a Guardian online Q & A panel on Careers in Psychology. Neil is an advisor to the Swedish Foundation for the Social Sciences and Humanities and is an invited member of the Pearson Psychology Advisory Board.

He acts as consultant to business and the media on topics related to the psychology of smell and taste. Clients have ranged from the BBC Good Food Magazine and Wallace and Gromit's World of Inventions to Firminisch, Unilever, Allyn & Bacon and Lever Brothers. Reports of his research have appeared in all major national newspapers, magazines and radio stations and in over 200 outlets nationally and  internationally.

Recent press includes features in The Guardian, New Scientist, Stylist, The Daily Telegraph, The Independent, the Mail online, The Sunday Times, and others. His study on the controversial relationship between pain and olfactory perception drew international attention and commentary from press and campaigners, and featured in a leader in The Independent.  He recently appeared on BBC World speaking about cross-cultural differences in humour and comedy.
