Photo 1 [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.
Photo 2 [4 October 2016] Congratulations are given to Ms Holly Scott and Ms Andra Coldea, for their recent success at the Undergraduate Awards (UA) 2016. Ms Scott was announced Regional Winner, with her paper #sleepyteens: Social media use is associated with poor sleep, anxiety, depression and low self-esteem in adolescents, which was also the highest performing paper in the Europe region, in the Psychology category. Ms Coldea received recognition as a Highly Commended Entrant with her paper Dual Brain Imaging During Naturalistic Communication - Empirical Evidence In Support of a More Integrative Approach To Research.
Photo 3 [2 August 2016] Best Paper for the prestigious 39th International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval was won by Yashar Moshfeghi, Peter Triantafillou and Frank Pollick for their paper “Understanding Information Need: an fMRI Study”. The study involved a unique collaboration in the College of Science and Engineering between the ‘School of Psychology’ and the ‘School of Computing Science’ to combine experimental techniques of brain imaging and information retrieval. This work was chosen best among a field of 341 submissions for its groundbreaking work in relating existing theories of information need to underlying processes of the human brain.
Photo 4 [4 July 2016] Researchers from the CCNi have developed a method to characterise oscillatory activity in human resting-state MEG data. They made use of single-trial clustering, which results in robust spectral fingerprints for anatomically defined brain areas. These spectral modes generalise across participants and can be used for automatic classification of regional oscillatory brain activity. Anne Keitel and Joachim Gross published the study in PLoS Biology. The article can be found here
Photo 5 [14 June 2016] The annual Guardian University Guide was published in May and the School of Psychology were delighted to be ranked 4th nationally behind Cambridge, Bath, and St Andrews. The School earned an overall score of 88.7, and were especially pleased to receive high scores for overall student satisfaction (95%) and satisfaction with teaching (95%). Much of this success is due to the excellent teaching provided by a team of highly qualified University Teachers who lecture and supervise students across all years of study. They work hard to ensure our teaching is research led, involving their researcher colleagues directly in curriculum strand development, assessment and feedback, and skills development in small group teaching.
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
