Research in Neuroscience, Psychology & Behaviour at the University of Leicester

The Department of Neuroscience Psychology & Behaviour was created by merging the departments many of the staff involved in the UoA4 unit of assessment under REF2014. This included staff members from the School of Psychology, Cell Physiology & Pharmacology and Biology. Staff members contribute to undergraduate teaching across the College and in Research we continue a multi-disciplinary approach with fundamental investigations and applied studies.

As part of the College of Medicine Biological Sciences and Psychology our research benefits from integrated basic science with clinical interests in brain function, psychology, psychiatry and disease. We have many partners in government, industry and the public sector, including education, services allied to health and partners associated with the legal system.

Our research is distributed into four linked Divisions, each of which is led by two Lead Researchers and the whole overseen by a Research Team Committee composed of these Leads and key representatives from other Departments across the University.
