The School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences has come through a period of exciting change and development. The School was formed in August 2005 when Clinical Language Sciences merged with the School of Psychology to become the new School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences. We are based at Earley Gate on the main Whiteknights campus in a purpose-designed building, which offers specialist laboratory accommodation for research and teaching.
The Department of Psychology has a long-standing reputation for excellence in experimental psychology, perception, learning, memory and skilled performance. In more recent years, research has strengthened in the field of developmental psychology, neuroscience, ageing, virtual reality and multimedia interactions.
The Department of Clinical Language Sciences focuses on research and teaching in the area of typical and atypical speech and language acquisition and in acquired speech and language disorders. The emphasis on clinical research is enhanced by links with local NHS facilities and professionals. Enhanced facilities within the School include new speech and language therapy clinics.
The Centre for Integrative Neuroscience and Neurodynamics (CINN), which opened in 2008, occupies a dedicated wing in the Psychology building, and is a pioneering centre for interdisciplinary neuroscience at the University.
The School attracts large numbers of undergraduate and graduate students from the UK and overseas and offers a supportive and stimulating environment in which to study and conduct research.
