About

Psychology and Neuroscience are highly interrelated. At their core, both subjects are focused on the study of the brain and behaviour; with psychology focusing more heavily on the side of behaviour and neuroscience more on the side of the brain.

Within our department, researchers are investigating phenomena ranging from sleep to pain, language to tone, vision to memory, and many other exciting areas. 

Students with undergraduate degrees in psychology or neuroscience are well-equipped to pursue paths towards clinical psychology, occupational therapy, research, medicine, law, and many more.
