Teaching staff in the School of Psychology undertake internationally-leading research within the broad areas of cognition, neuroscience, vision and social psychology. We have an interdisciplinary research approach in which both fundamental and applied research questions are investigated.

As part of the College of Life Sciences, our research benefits from extensive collaborations with basic scientists, epidemiologists, health psychologists, ophthalmologists and clinical practitioners. We also work with a significant number of government, public sector and industry partners including education providers, services allied to health and the legal system.

Our overarching research aim is to promote active research collaborations at both a national and international level. The members of the School of Psychology are actively researching in multiple areas and are predominantly affiliated with the Department of Neuroscience, Psychology and Behaviour.
