Our Research Areas
Researchers in Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour at McMaster are dedicated to the study of animal and human behavior, learning, understanding and perception. With unique facilities such as the LiveLab, which can function as a concert hall and mimic any acoustical environment, the living laboratories of Cootes Paradise and the Royal Botanical Gardens, and motion simulators, we explore the ways in which everything from neurons to individuals and societies develop, respond, learn and evolve. Our work clusters around the following areas. Many of our researchers work across these boundaries with work that flows among the clusters, demonstrating the spirit of McMaster’s interdisciplinary collaboration.
