The School of Psychology undertakes outstanding interdisciplinary scientific research under three contemporary research themes: Neuroscience, Cognitive Science, and Social, Health & Developmental Psychology. Many individuals in the School are leading figures in their research area, and the School is renowned, both nationally and internationally, as a centre for research excellence in Psychology (RAE2008).
The three broad themes support ten smaller research groups that aim to understand the psychological and biological foundations of animal and human behaviour at both individual and group levels. The research undertaken in the School ranges from 'synapse to society', and includes normal behaviour in development and adulthood, the breakdown of cognition after stress, trauma and in neurological and/or genetic conditions, as well as key psychological issues of broad importance to society, such as prejudice, reproductive health and optimising performance at work.
