Over the past two and a half decades, faculty, post-graduate students, and undergraduates in the Schools of Psychology, Linguistics and Education at Bangor University have conducted studies at Tir na n-Og. These studies include over 19 PhD projects, 27 Masters research projects, and 48 undergraduate projects.

Current research takes place in our new research-dedicated facilities. These state-of-the-art facilities are expected to facilitate even more research success in the near future. We have three dedicated research rooms with one-way observation mirrors, computers, and will soon be fully equipped for eye-tracking, electrophysiology (EEG and ERP), and functional imaging using fNIRS.
