Organisation profile

Research activity in the School of Psychological Science is organised into three research themes:

  • Cognitive Processes reflects the school’s long-standing tradition of excellence in experimental cognitive psychology.
  • Brain, Behaviour, and Health is a more recent but well established research strength.
  • Decision-making and Rationality represents a new research direction.

Research highlights

The school takes a multidisciplinary approach to research, with staff working in collaboration with colleagues from all other faculties in order to address fundamental questions of psychology through an experimental lens. Strong links exist in particular with the School of Social and Community Medicine, the School of Clinical Sciences, Computer Science and CRIC Bristol. Our research aims to advance thinking in the context of industry, healthcare, education and society.

Researchers have access to a wide range of state of the art facilities, including structural and functional imaging, psychopharmacology laboratories, eye movement and motion capture equipment, and electroencephalography (EEG).
