Guidelines for the Eligibility of Applications in Psychology

NSERC considers eligible applications that relate to fundamental psychological processes, their underlying neural mechanisms, their development within individuals, and their evolutionary and ecological context. Fundamental processes are understood to include:

  • sensation and perception;
  • sensorimotor integration;
  • motivation, emotion and reward;
  • Learning and memory;
  • cognition and language;
  • sleep, arousal and the chrono-biological modulation of behaviour; and
  • statistical methods for analysis of psychological data.
