Welcome

The Western Foundational Processes of Behaviour (FPB) Research Laboratories host world-class research focused on uncovering the fundamental mechanisms of the human brain and behaviour. Comprising of a team of internationally recognized researchers; the FPB initiative has become one of the most successful and productive research initiatives in the School of Social Sciences and Psychology. Over the last two years FPB have been awarded with a staggering 30 highly competitive national and international grants, with a total value of over $10,500,000.

Our research team is committed to:

  • Excellence in research and theory building
  • World class program for training graduate students
  • Attracting competitive research funding
