Research in Psychology
Members of the Division of Psychology are involved in an exciting and innovative range of research at the cutting edge of psychology. Our research expertise represents interests in the application of psychology to understanding health and well-being; cognition and brain research including neuropsychology, perception and developmental psychology; and the connections between identity, social constructionism and narrative. Please follow the links below for more information about the aims and activities of our research groups.
Applied Health and Social Psychology Group
The Applied Health and Social Psychology Group is based in the Division of Psychology, in the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Bradford. It also includes links with a number of researchers from across and outside the University. Members of this group aim to draw upon psychological principles and theory to research how a range of issues impact upon health and wellbeing. Our work has an applied focus and explores the link between subjectivity and the social world in relation to health and well-being, as well as the relationship between biological and psychological processes.
Bradford Cognition and Brain Group
The Bradford Cognition and Brain Group (BCB Group) is a collaboration between the Division of Psychology and the School of Optometry and Vision Science. The aim of the group is to promote alliance and the sharing of research across the University of Bradford (and beyond) among anyone interested in Cognitive Psychology, or any type of brain functioning or behaviour. Regular seminars allow individuals to present their research to the rest of the group and encourage discussion of potential research links, including funding opportunities.
