Course Summary

We are engaged in a wide range of research in experimental psychology, cognitive neuroscience, language, perception, statistics and research methods in psychology, social robotics, and health cognition. We have a strong presence in the field of neuroimaging and brain stimulation. Our work has links with fundamental and clinical neuroscience.

OVERVIEW

At any time we comprise about 35 academics, 2 Fellows (Marie Curie and Adam Smith), 20 research associates/assistants and large postgraduate community (60 students, including PhD-, Masters- and visiting students). Our staff have many ongoing, funded research projects and receive major research funding from the Wellcome trust, BBSRC and ESRC.

Using diverse approaches and paradigms, our research aims to advance our understanding of behaviour and the underlying mental processes and brain function at multiple levels of analysis.

Researchers are grouped across the School of Psychology, the Centre for Social, Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience (cSCAN), and the Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging (CCNi), which provides state-of-the-art functional neuroimaging facilities. Many investigators have double affiliations with links to the Institute of Neuroscience & Psychology, which span two colleges (Science & Engineering, and Medical, Veterinary & Life Sciences), and integrates research from molecular to system neuroscience across a broad spectrum of interdisciplinary and translational programmes.
