Experimental Psychology Department - University of Cambridge

Experimental Psychology is one of the core departments contributing to the MRC Cambridge Centre for Brain Repair, a new interdisciplinary research centre. Experimental psychology has been taught at Cambridge for more than a century. It was probably in 1877 that James Ward proposed a laboratory should be established in Cambridge to study psychophysics, the relation between the physical properties of stimuli and experienced sensations. This proposal is said to have been rejected by the governing body of the University on the grounds that it would 'insult religion by putting the soul in a pair of scales'. However, in 1897, William H.R. Rivers was appointed University Lecturer in Physiological and Experimental Psychology; Rivers was to become eminent as a neurologist, psychologist, anthropologist, and psychiatrist.

The Department of Experimental Psychology is celebrated for its teaching; students are taught by researchers of international excellence and many of its past students have gone on to prominent positions in psychology and related fields throughout the world. The Department scored 24/24 in its last Teaching Quality Assessment conducted by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education.

The Department was given the highest score, in the last Research Assessment Exercise conducted by the Higher Education Funding Council for England in 2008. The research staff include university teaching officers (lecturers, readers, and professors), postdoctoral research associates, research assistants, laboratory staff, and graduate students. They conduct psychological and neuroscientific research into topics including sensory perception, attention, memory, language, cognitive development, psychopathology, computational models of psychological processes, associative learning, animal cognition and behaviour, and drug addiction.
