Welcome to the School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences. With over 80 years of experience, we are world leaders in teaching, research and training. The international research standing of the School is based on a world class contribution to psychology and neuroscience in a number of areas, with the bridge between neuroscience and clinical disorders being a common theme to much of our work. The School comprises the Department of Psychology, the Department of Clinical Language Sciences, the Charlie Waller Institute and the Centre for Integrative Neuroscience and Neurodynamics.
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 behaviour change.
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 on-site NHS clinic facilities.
The School has grown rapidly in the last few years, establishing the Centre for Integrative Neuroscience and Neurodynamics (CINN), in 2008, which is now a leading centre for interdisciplinary neuroscience.
In addition, the award winning Charlie Waller Institute which leads research, training and evaluation of evidence-based psychological treatments of clinical disorders has just celebrated its fifth birthday. Finally, the School is playing a leading role in the new Centre for Literacy and Multilingualism which provides a hub for research into linguistic, psychological, clinical and educational aspects of multilingualism and literacy.
