The School of Psychology is a thriving research community with a strong tradition of theoretical and applied research integrating trans-disciplinary expertise from experimental, developmental, health, clinical and social psychology. Our research is mainly focussed on six key research clusters:
Since 2008 we have significantly invested in our facilities and space to allow us to actively utlise the full range of Psychological methods, from brain-scanning to qualitative textual coding, and to enable us to develop new and creative projects. We have well equipped babylab, psychophysiology and brain-scanning laboratories; suites for coding video and audio recording, an extensive library of assesments and tests, and a range of up-to-date equipment, including eye-tracking, EEG, TMS and fNIRs set-ups. We are particularly interested in adapting methods for use in real-world settings.
