The Centre for Research in Psychology and Sport Sciences coordinates research in the corresponding Department, primarily in the context of the University’s Health research theme. Within this Health theme, psychological/mental health and sports-related interventions are significant sub themes.
The Centre brings together the work of approximately 45 members of academic and research staff, as well as around 75 doctoral-level students, eight of whom are supported by Centre studentships. The Centre enjoys collaborative research links with the Hertfordshire Partnership NHS Trust, particularly through links with our Doctorate in Clinical Psychology programme. The Centre also supports the development of research impact, for example through links with charities and other user-groups.
Dr Mike Page is a cognitive psychologist with interests in two principal areas.
The first is human memory, specifically memory for sequences, in relation to which he is engaged in a major programme of joint research with colleagues in Louvain and Gent. The second is pro-environmental behaviour change: he has been, and continues to be, involved in a number of innovative projects, in particular the Cube Project.
He teaches Cognitive Psychology and is experienced in giving public presentations to a variety of audiences.
