The School of Psychology has a well-established reputation for its innovative approach and commitment to real-world application. This area of the School’s work is wide ranging and involves researchers undertaking both collaborative and individual projects. Specific areas covered include face perception, visual attention, expertise, decision making, and folk understandings of psychological process. These are linked to application in areas such as forensic technology, driving behaviour, radiography, organophosphate exposure, facial disfigurement and understanding bias. An interdisciplinary approach is often taken which has led to strong links with researchers in other departments and faculties, producing a vibrant research culture in this area of enquiry.
