Our work centres on educating psychologists but is inspired by our ground-breaking research.
There is an extensive range of research in psychology. There are also interdisciplinary areas involving psychology.
Research takes place in academic units or groupings beyond the School. It involves research in other Faculties, the NHS and elsewhere in Newcastle.
The Institute of Neuroscience
Behaviour, psychology and cognitive neurosciences are the principal research themes in the Institute. But psychologists get involved in other aspects of the Institute's research.
Many staff from our School conduct their research at the Institute. Our research students work there too. For more information, visit the Institute of Neuroscience website.
Institute of Health and Society
This Institute straddles the Faculty boundaries of medical and social sciences. Psychological research is particularly reflected in the Life Course, Development & Ageing programme.
This links to other research taking place in the School and Institute of Neuroscience. For more information, visit the The Institute of Health and Society website.
Institute for Ageing
The Institute investigates why and how we age, including psychological aspects of ageing. There are links with the two institutes above, as well as NHS and clinical psychologists. For more information, visit the Institute for Ageing website.
Centre for Research in Linguistics and Language Sciences
Our work also links up with the Centre for Research in Language and Language Sciences. There are research projects in language acquisition, and acquired and developmental speech disorders.
A new research grouping in brain and language links Neuroscience, the Centre and others. For more information, visit the Centre for Research in Linguistics and Language Sciences website.
We work with the School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences. Research includes educational psychology (Professor Liz Todd).
Newcastle University Business School has a range of multidisciplinary research centres and projects. These include psychological perspectives on such areas as consumer behaviour and organisational behaviour.
