Psychology research

HSE’s Psychology Faculty is hosting Welcome Lab Day, when the School of Psychology laboratories open their doors to the public. Psychology is one of today’s fastest-growing areas of research, and has an impact on all areas of life. Welcome Lab Day opens this up to the general public, and people will have the opportunity to learn more about how to manage their moods, develop their abilities, take decisions, and even be happy – by taking a truly scientific approach to these issues.

Answers to these key questions can be found in research by members of HSE’s Psychology Department. This event takes place twice a year, and young researchers are invited to take a closer look at psychology, see the technology used in this research, and get a sense of what it is like to be a research psychologist for a while.

Welcome Lab Day at HSE’s School of Psychology will take place on October 17 from 3 pm to 5 pm
