Course content

Psychology at Edinburgh celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2006, with the past 10 years witnessing a rapid growth in psychological research at the University. Psychology is now at the centre of a nexus of related research units and is rapidly establishing itself as a centre of excellence for interdisciplinary research.

We host four major research groups:

  • Human Cognitive Neuroscience;
  • Language, Cognition and Communication;
  • Differential and Health;

We also have an additional focus in Visual Cognition. Each group makes an active contribution in a number of areas, including intelligence and cognitive aging, perception and motor control and social and developmental psychology.
