Differential Psychology research at Edinburgh is concerned with the ways in which people influence their lives.
The work of the group is rated as world leading. We focus on this theme via a broad set of sub-topics, ranging from cognitive epidemiology to positive psychology. Key projects include Cognitive Epidemiology, Cognitive Ageing, Evolutionary Psychology, and Positive Psychology.
You would choose from a wide range of techniques, including large subject databases, archival work. Students take part in vibrant journal clubs, and join a large research community, with links across Britain, the USA, Australia, and elsewhere.
