The School of Psychology at the University of St Andrews is once again to open its doors for its annual event “The Psychology of Everyday Life”.
The event, which is free of charge, allows members of the public to hear and see some of the leading figures in psychological research in Scotland today.
The School of Psychology is a 5* research department (2001 Research Assessment Exercise) of international renown and its members cross a diverse range of fields including learning disability, dementia, attention deficits, perceptions of technological risk and primate behaviour.
Event organiser Paul Gardner said, “This event really shows the strength and breadth of research in Scotland today and is an excellent opportunity for everyone to see the real experts in action. Many of the topics covered are often reported in the press and on the news but it seems so rare that we get a chance to meet those people who are helping us to understand the world around us.”
Among those taking part are Martin Campbell, Professor Terence Lee, Dr Verity Brown, Dr Arlene Astell, Elisabeth Cornwell and Sarah Marshall-Pescini. Alongside the guest lectures, there will be postgraduate and research group poster displays as well as an opportunity to take part in some ongoing and future research.
The Open Day is being held as part of National Science Week and Brain Awareness Week and will take place in Parliament Hall, South Street, St Andrews, on Saturday 9 March 9 2002 from 10am until 4pm.
