ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership for Social Sciences


Cognition, behaviour, language and learning Cluster

This thematic cluster, drawing on our wide language provision and specialisms in early years education, brings together research which addresses challenges relating to understanding human cognition (broadly learning, reasoning, affective processes, and decision making) and behaviour across the life course from birth to old age. This includes understanding the antecedents of cognition/behaviour (biological substrates, early developmental experiences, socio-cultural influences broadly construed, from family to society), their consequences (including social and societal impact in terms of social disadvantage), how they change in salient contexts (for example, behavior in conditions of risk and uncertainty) and the causal mechanisms enabling intervention (including learning environments, education and healthy aging). 

Students within this Cluster are:
