About the Department

The University of Liverpool has a long history of psychological research and was one the first Universities in the UK to establish a Department on the subject. We currently have over 100 staff, including Chairs, Lecturers and Researchers, with expertise in experimental, applied and clinical domains.  


Our experts are brought together across several research groups that drive research of value to developments in psychology, psychiatry and behavioural medicine across three cross cutting themes which cover Expertise and Decision Making, Mother Infant Interaction (including Developmental Psychopathology) and Neuroscience.
