Cognitive neuroscience

Scientists in this area use an interdisciplinary approach to understand the human mind. This theme encompasses imaging neuroscience, neurophysiology, computation, and experimental psychology.

The goal is to further our understanding of the relationship between cognitive phenomena and the underlying physical substrate of the brain. Using a combination of behavioral paradigms, state-of-the-art brain imaging, and theoretical modelling, the cognitive neuroscience research taking place within the department seeks to elucidate how high-level functions, such as working memory, body-self perception, and creativity relate to specific neural substructures in the human brain.
