‌Research in Psychology aims to describe, explain, and predict human behaviour. The range of questions addressed varies enormously, from very fundamental questions about perception, to applied questions about health. Across these questions, psychology research is unified by a scientifically rigorous approach to understanding human experience. This is done based on empirical observations made at both a behavioural and neural level.

The school is extremely fortunate to have a critical mass of academic staff, research fellows, and postgraduate students working in both school led clusters and university wide research centres. Across these activities we collaborate widely with other international academic research centres of excellence, and our work is generously sponsored.‌
