The research of our staff is informed by cognitive principles, be it in the clinical, social, or even forensic and organisational domains. After all, cognition is about how we analyse, integrate and interpret information, which is relevant to most aspects of human behaviour.
In addition to those whose research has a cognitive foundation, there are academics at our school whose research focuses directly on an understanding of cognitive processes themselves. This research includes analyses of memory, thought, language and decision-making, with specialists in each of these areas who have a strong international reputation.
Our researchers are widely published and have been very successful in attracting research funding from several different sources. The School of Psychology has one of the strongest groups of cognitive researchers in Australia.
