Research in the Department of Experimental Psychology aims to understand the psychological and neural mechanisms relevant to human behaviour, and, where appropriate, translate their findings into evidence-based public benefits in mental health and wellbeing, education, industry, and policy. The department’s key areas of research include: behavioural neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, developmental psychology, social psychology and psychological disorders. The department has excellent links with a wide variety of special populations, such as older people, mothers and babies, schools, and patients with psychological problems.
