Photo 2 [24 November 2016] The 8th Glasgow Neuroscience Day, will be held at The Queen Elizabeth University Hospital campus, on Wednesday 18th January 2017. This annual event brings neuroscientists from the Universities of Glasgow, Strathclyde and Caledonian, with clinical colleagues from the NHS, together to interact and talk about the latest neuroscience research being carried out in Glasgow. For further information, online registration and abstract submission please visit: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/glasgow-neuroscience-day-2017-tickets-24081729100
Photo 3 [24 November 2016] In a recent paper, INP researchers present a new set of statistical tools for analyzing neuroimaging data. This flexible approach provides several advantages, including the ability to look at multivariate signals and to quantify representational interactions between different neural responses. The paper, “A statistical framework for neuroimaging data analysis based on mutual information estimated via a Gaussian copula” is published in Human Brain Mapping.
Photo 4 [18 November 2016] We are very pleased to announce that the School of Psychology and Institute of Neuroscience & Psychology have been successful in their joint application for a prestigious Athena SWAN Bronze Departmental Award. The Athena SWAN awards, managed by the Equality Challenge Unit (ECU), recognise commitment to tackling gender inequality in higher education.
Photo 5 [17 October 2016] The Institute of Neuroscience & Psychology and the School of Psychology will host their annual Research Day on Tuesday 15th November 2016. This event will take the format of a series of short presentations by senior PhD students and post-docs, highlighting the breadth of research performed across the fields of neuroscience and psychology. Presentations will cover both ongoing and novel research, including basic research and clinically motivated studies, and span from neurophysiology and anatomy to cognitive neuroimaging, psychophysics and behavioural studies in psychology. This event will provide ample opportunities for students and researchers to learn about the work of others, and will foster interactions and discussions across disciplines and research methods.
Psychology at the University of Glasgow is rated very highly for research and teaching.
In the 2014 UK Research Excellence Framework, 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
