Photo 5 [17 April 2018] A new study by Anne Keitel, Joachim Gross and Christoph Kayser (CCNi) uncovers neural mechanisms during natural speech comprehension. By focusing on stimulus-specific timescales and measuring comprehension on individual trials, we show that distinct neural and linguistic timescales relate to speech encoding along the auditory-motor pathway. The findings suggest spatially and temporally distinct brain mechanisms that directly shape our comprehension. The study was published in PLoS Biology: Keitel, Gross, & Kayser (2018). Perceptually relevant speech tracking in auditory and motor cortex reflects distinct linguistic features. PLoS Bio 16(3).
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
