The department uses a rigorous scientific approach to study the human mind, brain and behaviour. Research is carried out by three distinctive but cross-disciplinary groups – the Behavioural Science Group, the Lifespan Health & Wellbeing Group and the Language and Learning Group. The Lifespan Health and Wellbeing Group (LHWG), led by Professor Dieter Wolke, conducts research across the lifespan in order to develop a better overall understanding of the processes and mechanisms involved that can be used for the development of health policy and clinical practice. The group currently comprises eight core academics, a dozen postdocs or post graduate researchers and a range of research affiliates in longitudinal epidemiology and experimental psychology with common interests in the factors that determine and/or the mechanisms that underlie healthy development, living and aging. The LHWG works closely with the Division of Mental Health and Wellbeing, the Warwick Clinical Trial Unit and The departments of Statistics and Mathematics. With the research team’s unique expertise and skill sets, members provide the foundation for developing a distinctive, world-leading centre for research into lifespan health and wellbeing.
