The Department of Psychology at the University of Wisconsin has established strong traditions of excellence in research, teaching, and in the training the next generation of psychological scientists.  Our faculty and students conduct cutting-edge, award-wining research that is at the forefront of discoveries in the field & research that both defines and shapes the future of psychological science.  The research conducted in our Department spans the breadth and diversity of contemporary psychology including emotion, affective, cognitive, and social neuroscience, aging, language, cognitive, social, perceptual, and emotional development, perception, memory, psychopathology, addiction, motivation, prejudice, culture, personality and biological bases of behavior in human and nonhuman animals.  In addition, we strive to translate the most rigorous psychological science into applications that promote physical and mental health, optimal aging, language and social development, reading and math skills, educational achievement, pharmacological interventions, improved social interactions between minority and majority groups, and accommodation of cultural differences.
