Biological Psychology

The Biological Psychology group investigates the biology of thinking, feeling, and behaviour. Our research makes discoveries in the fields of learning and memory, ageing and dementia, reward and motivation, action and choice, social cognition, addiction, appetite and food preference, interoception, and the balance of energy supply and demand in the brain. We investigate healthy functions and disorders with a close translational relationship between our pre-clinical and clinical work.

Members of our group are associated with the Sensory Systems and Sussex Neuroscience strategic focus areas, and collaborate with colleagues in the School of Psychology, Life Sciences and the Brighton and Sussex Medical School. Dr Liat Levita is the group leader.
