Neurosciences and Behaviour
The theme of Neurosciences and Behaviour underpins research into the brain and human adaptations and functioning. Our researchers focus on preventing, supporting and treating chronic physical, mental and developmental health issues.
We build the evidence base relating to cancer prevention through improvements in lifestyle behaviours that are known to be associated with cancer risk.
Brain, behaviour and mental health
We aim to understand the interplay between basic structures of the brain, cognitive processes, emotional functioning and behaviour.
Communication, language, speech sciences and swallowing
We are committed to understanding theories of typical and disordered communication and swallowing across the lifespan.
Health psychology and behavioural medicine
We examine the psychological factors associated with health-related behaviour and develop interventions that promote health.
