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.

Words from the wise

Join us in an afternoon talk from an expert outlining his or her current research.
