Themes

Our research aims to have a direct impact on understanding human health and wellbeing, including the changes in the brain that lead to disordered cognition and mental health.

A clinician and patient in a clinical consultation

Clinical neuroimaging

We're advancing the understanding of the mechanisms of brain disorders, evaluating protocols for monitoring disease and more.

A girl engages in a cognitive testing task on a computer

Cognitive neuroscience

We apply a combination of psychophysics, computational modeling and multimodal brain imaging to understand the biological foundations of key cognitive abilities.

Electroencephalography

Cognitive electrophysiology

Our research examines the ways in which episodic retrieval is constrained, directed and controlled.

A researcher monitors a patient undergoing an MRI scan

Functional magnetic resonance imaging

We're employing this technique to map a wide range of brain functions in basic and clinical neuroscience research.

A researcher monitors a participant who is sitting in the MEG scanner

Mapping the brain's electrical activity

We use cortical oscillations as markers of cognitive function in health and diseases such as epilepsy, schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s.

A patient undertakes an MRI scan

Microstructural imaging

We utilise multiple imaging contrasts to quantify different aspects of white matter.

A researcher applies brain stimulation to a participants head

Non-invasive brain stimulation methods

Find out about the techniques we're using to study perception, attention and higher cognition.

Sleep research

We're working on ways to enhance memory, disarm negative emotions and combat cognitive decline through ageing.
