Psychology is the scientific study of human behaviour and mental functioning. Psychologists are interested in how people think, feel and act – from interactions between neurons to interactions between people.

Addiction, pain management, autism, ADHD, the effect of food additives and sexual health: these are just a few of the areas in which our research teams are seeking to aid and inform the wider community.

You may be interested in hearing a talk given by a world-class expert, or you may be looking for something more hands-on. Just get in touch. For us, this is all part of bringing science into the community.
