Course Summary

Each University Department of Psychology is unique. The imprint of the ethos, enthusiasms and research expertise of the staff is transferred to the students: it is the individuals that make up a University department who collectively decide on what is taught and examined, which topics, techniques and projects students will experience. In this research area we study the psychological basis of cognitive abilities such as language, memory, spatial and numerical processing. Our excellent research facilities allow us to make use of a wide range of experimental methods, including eye tracking, EMG, EEG, MEG, fMRI, TMS. We regularly use a variety of methods to explore our research questions from different perspectives. In addition, our research covers a broad range of different populations, ranging from typically developing children and adults to children and adults with developmental and neuropsychological disorders and on to non-human primates and other animals. Our research is regularly supported by research councils, charities and other funding bodies.
