Our School has a thriving academic community made up of active researchers in a wide variety of areas. Our research is internationally recognised and has a significant impact through benefits to society. There are four research groups: 'Cognition, Brain, and Behaviour', 'Developmental Psychology', 'Health and Well-being' and 'Social Psychological'. Cutting across these research groups are the specialist interest groups: Children and Young People’s Research Network, Keele Action Research Network and the Qualitative Psychology Forum. All staff and postgraduate students belong to one or more of these groupings, and research that crosses thematic boundaries is also encouraged.
