Neuroscience & Psychology

Neuroscience & Psychology

Glasgow is ranked 6th in the UK for Psychology (Complete University Guide 2021).

Neuroscience & Psychology offers an excellent research environment with impressive facilities and world-leading expertise. We strive to understand the human brain and behaviour at multiple levels of function, from cells to cognition and social interaction. Our research teams combine multimodal brain imaging with sophisticated analyses to study human and animal brain functioning, or examine fundamental mechanisms of social perception, social cognition and social interaction, along with applications in the domains of health and artificial agents.
