We use a rigorous scientific approach to study the human mind, brain and behaviour.
Applying the core principles of cognitive psychology, we explore how people come to make the important decisions in their everyday lives.
Health and wellbeing across the lifespan, with an emphasis on translating research into clinical practice and health policy.
Cognitive factors involved in the successful mastery of language and learning, and applying the language research to the classroom.
With the latest facilities we carry out:

- large longitudinal epidemiological studies
- experimental psychology
- cognitive research
- quantitative and qualitative research
- mathematical modelling including the use of network analyses, statistical bootstrapping, and computational simulations.
