Photo 1 [2 January 2015] University of Glasgow is rated UK’s #1 for Research Intensity in Psychology, Psychiatry and Neuroscience (jointly with UCL) according to the Times Higher Education Intensity ranking. Times Higher Education used the REF ‘grade point average’ (GPA) and estimated Research Intensity, which is the GPA multiplied by the proportion of eligible staff submitted.

"The College’s Psychology, Psychiatry and Neuroscience submission also excelled with 44% rated 'world-leading': an evaluation which underlined its grounding in excellence, particularly in systems neuroscience, cognitive neuroimaging and social interactions."

Photo 2 [18 December 2014] The School of Psychology and the Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging (within the Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology) are pleased to announce the availability of - MSc (1+3) and PhD (+3) studentships funded by the Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC), and - PhD (+3) scholarships from the College of Science and Engineering. Funding will be available from October 2015. Deadline for submissions is January 23, 2015.

Photo 3 [3 October 2014] £1m project sets out to find mental illness ‘fingerprint’ in brainwaves
A team of psychologists and psychiatrists are beginning research on a brainwave ‘fingerprint’ which could identify young people at risk of developing serious mental illness.
Researchers from the Universities of Glasgow and Edinburgh are looking to recruit 100 volunteers aged between 16 and 35 for a new £1m project which will measure their brain activity and examine changes in their mental state for a period of up to two years.
The researchers hope that the project could lead to an early-warning system capable of identifying people at high risk of developing psychosis before they fully manifest the symptoms, such as hallucinations or delusions.

Photo 4 [9 September 2014] Professors Christoph Kayser and Joachim Gross have been awarded a Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) 3-year grant to study how seeing a speakers face can make us hear better. It is well known that visual information changes the way our brain processes sounds and this affects how well we can converse in noisy acoustic environments. The project “Pathways and mechanisms underlying the visual enhancement of hearing in challenging environments” investigates the underlying neural mechanisms using combined neuroimaging (MEG) and behavioural studies to provide a better understanding of how our brain encodes what we hear and help us understand hearing deficits or enhance computer assisted communication technologies.

Psychology at the University of Glasgow is rated very highly for research and teaching.
In the 2014 UK Research Assessment Exercise, Psychology at Glasgow was ranked #1 in research intensity (jointly with UCL) according to the Times Higher Education. We earned the highest grade possible (4*) for a very high proportion (44%) of research. For teaching, we are consistently ranked 1st in Scotland and in the top 5 in the UK in national league tables, such as #2 in the 2015 Guardian Universities Guide.
The Subject Area of Psychology spans two colleges:

-  the College of Science
   and Engineering


-  the College of Medical,
    Veterinary and Life Sciences
