Cognitive neuroscience is a discipline at the interface of systems neuroscience, computational neuroscience and cognitive psychology.
A thriving community of cognitive neuroscientists at the Centre uses a combination of psychophysics, computational modeling and multimodal brain imaging (fMRI, dMRI, MRS, MEG, TMS and tDCS) to understand the biological foundations of key cognitive abilities.
- social cognition
- the control of action.
Translational cognitive neuroscience studies examine the:
- breakdown of cognition in neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental disorders
- cognitive phenotypes linking polygenic disease risk to brain structure and function throughout the life course
- neuroplasticity in response to cognitive training, sleep engineering and brain stimulation.
