Cognitive Neuroscience Research Group

The Cognitive Neuroscience Research Group aims to understand the function and dysfunction of neural systems that control cognition and behavior.

The unit comprises basic and clinical scientists who lead internationally recognized research programs, and together provide a highly collaborative research and training environment. Research themes focus on perception, memory, language, emotion, plasticity, and executive functions, which are studied in humans and animal models. The team makes use of many techniques, including psychophysics, cognitive tasks, and neuropsychological testing to characterize behaviour, with the aim of linking them to measures of brain function and anatomy.
