Experimental Psychology

Using experimental methods to explore theory and test hypotheses, experimental psychologists study the relationship between the mind and human behaviour. Key areas of our work include studying judgements and decision making, perception, memory and learning and understanding how changes in these basic human abilities impact on wellbeing and mental health.
