The School places emphasis on research-led teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels from leading researchers in both Psychology and Neuroscience.
Modern psychology focuses on the understanding of perception, cognition, motivation and behaviour at several different levels. The undergraduate and postgraduate subject areas range from the study of the brain to complex social interactions of humans and animals.
Neuroscience is the science of the nervous system. Undergraduate students will study how the mind and brain work to facilitate our behaviour, covering topics such as memory formation, cognitive processing and the activity of nerve cells. Postgraduate students will be provided with advanced training in neuroscience research, learning relevant skills and techniques throughout the course work.
