Research Groups

Psychology has organised its research along four broad themes:

Research groups

Research in Psychology targets scientific and applied research on a key challenge for the 21st century: how do human cognition, human behaviour and the human brain develop and function from infancy through to later life? Its research approach is to undertake discovery science on topics that are of interest both to other scientists and to the general public, focusing on how and why individuals differ throughout the lifespan, how memory, language, perception and action develop and function in the healthy brain, and how cognition and behaviour are affected by and respond to focal brain damage and brain diseases. Psychology is afilliated to Edinburgh Neuroscience, a research network that facilitates ongoing interaction and collaborations between researchers from across the University of Edinburgh working at all levels of neuroscience from molecules through synapses and networks to cognition and behaviour.
