Welcome to the Psychological Sciences Research Group blog!
We are a team of researchers based at the University of the West of England, Bristol, and our work clusters around four themes: Applied Cognition and Neuroscience, Optimising Performance and Engagement, Promoting Psychological Health, and Ageing Well. We conduct diverse research and have a common interest in exploring the workings of the mind and brain and an ultimate goal of translating our findings for real-world applications. We aim to apply our research to inform the environments in which we live – environments at work, in schools, in sports and health settings, and in our wider communities.
Our ever-growing group began just a few years ago, and we are now launching this blog to continue to engage with researchers internally and externally as well as the general public. We will be posting content every few weeks on a range of subjects associated with psychological science. We’ll discuss current issues in psychology, opinions on ideas and trends in our discipline, and updates on our current projects.
