The Psychology, Psychiatry and Neuroscience Subject Area explores research into what makes us human, what it means to be alive, and why we behave in the ways we do. Our Researchers are involved in activity surrounding the workings of the brain; the processes and mechanisms of human thinking, feeling and behaviour; and how psychologists, psychological research and therapy can make a tangible and positive difference to people's lives and society.


The research activity conducted in the subject area is underpinned by four research clusters:

Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021

In the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021, 100% of NTU's research environment in Psychology, Psychiatry and Neuroscience was assessed to be world-leading or internationally excellent in terms of quality.
