Cognitive, Perceptual and Brain Sciences

The newly established Cognitive, Perceptual and Brain Sciences research department, part of the Division of Psychology and Language Sciences, offers a top research and teaching environment (receiving a 5* at the latest nationwide Research Assessment Exercise). Research focuses on behaviour and its neural underpinnings and covers behavioural neuroscience, perceptual and cognitive sciences and cognitive neuroscience. Members of the research department are directly involved in several research centres and institutes including the ESRC Deafness, Cognition and Language (DCAL) Research Centre, the ESRC Centre for Economic Learning and Social Evolution (ELSE), the Institute of Behavioural Neuroscience (IBN), the Birkbeck/UCL Centre for Neuroimaging (BUCNI) and the Centre for Mathematics and Physics in the Life Sciences and Experimental Biology (CoMPLEX). They further contribute to the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience (ICN) and the Wellcome Department of Imaging Neuroscience. Research facilities available to members of staff comprise state-of-the-art equipment for most types of behavioural research, scanning facilities (MRI) and TMS facilities.

Members of the research department contribute to teaching in the undergraduate programme in Psychology and to several postgraduate training courses in psychology and language sciences.
