We are in the top 20 Psychology departments in the UK for world-leading research publications.
How do babies develop an understanding of the world around them? We look at how language is learned and how a child's brain begins to make sense of the world.
Our expertise focuses on language at multiple levels from phonemes to literacy, and cognition from behavioural regulation to embodied cognition, and beyond.
How do we respond to different environments or stressful situations? We research how humans understand and process the world around us.
How do we develop definitions of morality or trust, and how do they affect our emotions in social interaction or decision making?
