Home Research

Our research contributes to solving problems relating to education (attention and behaviour disorders, exam anxiety, lecturer-student interaction, dyslexia, dyscalculia, etc.), society (violence, road safety, marketing, environmental management, communication in organisations, etc.) and health (psychological disorders, chronic pain, ageing, etc.), and to deepening knowledge of the biological, psychological and social principles of human behaviour. In the 2009 call of the Government of Catalonia’s Agency for Management of University and Research Grants (AGAUR), fifteen Faculty of Psychology research groups were recognised that study the areas of methodology, neuroscience and cognitive functions, clinical and health psychology, social psychology, education psychology and psychogerontology, among others. The general aim of the Institute for Research on the Brain, Cognition and Behaviour (IR3C) is to understand human behaviour in different contexts and circumstances. More specifically, research focuses on studying the relations between brain processes, cognitive functions, emotion and behaviour, in order to contribute to enhancing well-being through knowledge and technology transfer.
