The School of Psychology & Neuroscience has consistently been ranked one of the best research departments in the UK. Our research is broadly organised around 5 research themes, namely human cognition, neuroscience, origins of mind, perception, and social psychology, with many members of the School carrying out research in more than one theme. Researchers from the School also contribute to numerous interdisciplinary research centres and institutes.

  • Spatio-temporal complexity of chimpanzee food: how cognitive adaptations can counteract the ephemeral nature of ripe fruit 

    Janmaat, Karline Rozemarijn Lysbeth; Boesch, Christophe; Byrne, Richard William; Chapman, Colin A; Gone Bi, Zorro B; Head, Josephine S; Robbins, Martha M; Wrangham, Richard W; Polansky, Leo (2016-06) - Journal article
    Ecological complexity has been proposed to play a crucial role in primate brain-size evolution. However, detailed quantification of ecological complexity is still limited. Here we assess the spatio-temporal distribution ...
  • Cue generation and memory construction in direct and generative autobiographical memory retrieval 

    Harris, Celia; O'Connor, Akira Robert; Sutton, John (2015-05) - Journal article
    Theories of autobiographical memory emphasise effortful, generative search processes in memory retrieval. However recent research suggests that memories are often retrieved directly, without effortful search. We investigated ...
  • Regulation of mammalian spinal locomotor networks by glial cells 

    Acton, David (University of St Andrews, 2017-06) - Thesis
    Networks of interneurons within the spinal cord coordinate the rhythmic activation of muscles during locomotion. These networks are subject to extensive neuromodulation, ensuring appropriate behavioural output. Astrocytes ...
  • Lasing in live mitotic and non-phagocytic cells by efficient delivery of microresonators 

    Schubert, Marcel; Volckaert, Klara; Karl, Markus; Morton, Andrew; Liehm, Philipp; Miles, Gareth Brian; Powis, Simon John; Gather, Malte Christian (2017-01-19) - Journal article
    Reliable methods to individually track large numbers of cells in real time are urgently needed to advance our understanding of important biological processes like cancer metastasis, neuronal network development and wound ...
  • Pyow-hack revisited : two analyses of putty-nosed monkey alarm calls 

    Schlenker, Philippe; Chemla, Emmanuel; Arnold, Kate; Zuberbuehler, Klaus (2016-02) - Journal article
    Male putty-nosed monkeys have two main alarm calls, pyows and hacks. While pyows have a broad distribution suggestive of a general call, hacks are often indicative of eagles. In a series of articles, Arnold and Zuberbühler ...
