This transcript considers the origins and impact of the MRC Applied Psychology Unit’s work from 1944 to 1998. Psychologists, clinicians, and industrial, ergonomic and occupational psychologists discuss the evolution of work from quite narrow postwar industrial and military concerns to more recent applications in, for example, ageing, dyslexia, depression, form design, information and semantics. Those who contributed included Professor Alan Baddeley, Dr Philip Barnard, Dr Ivan Brown, Professor Sergio Della Sala, Mr David C Duncan, Professor Richard Gregory (Chair), Professor John Groeger, Professor Graham Hitch, Professor Robert Logie, Dr Brandon Lush, Professor William Marslen-Wilson, Professor Peter McLeod, Professor Pat Rabbitt, Professor Graham Richards, Dr David Tyrrell, Professor John West.
