University research themes
At York, researchers collaborate across the University's seven interdisciplinary research themes to address the great scientific, social and environmental challenges of our times.
Our department has particularly strong partnerships within three themes: Culture and Communication, Health and Wellbeing, and Technologies for the Future.
Culture and Communication
Psychology has a profound influence on culture and communications throughout the world. Our research under this theme is among our most far-reaching and impactive.
- How do we decide who to trust?
- Learning to read your baby's mind can help their social skills in later life
Health and Wellbeing
Improving both our physical and mental health is a key aim of our research.
Technologies for the Future
Our research has some suprising applications, including improving scanning techniques like Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
