This paper reviews experimental research into two- and three-body nucleon-nucleon interactions, carried out by the University of Glasgow Nuclear Physics research group. A key aim of these studies has been to elucidate the role of short-range nucleon-nucleon correlations (SRC). Studies of photon-induced two- and three-nucleon emission reactions from a range of light nuclei, carried out at the 840 MeV Mainz electron microtron MAMI-B, have provided detailed information on the contributing mechanisms. More recent electron scattering studies at the 6.0 GeV Jefferson Laboratory have probed SRC at high values of Q2 and xB and suggested a connection between SRC and the EMC effect.

Report on proceedings paper "Short range nucleon correlations studied with electron andphoton probes" by Douglas MacGregor The paper gives a review of work carried out by the Glasgow group on short range NN correlations and Mainz and then at JLab. This review is a good representation of the work presented by the author at the EFB24 conference and should be a useful reference for those referring to a general history of the work of the group. It should be published in the proceedings. Minor points to consider fixing during production stage: Some of the figures have been reproduced with somewhat poor resolution. In particular, figs 2 & 3. The title of the reference in [5] has a mistyped "/prime"
