The Centre for Cognition, Neuroscience and Neuroimaging (CNNI) conducts research into behaviour and brain function in healthy and clinical populations using a range of neuropsychological and neuroimaging techniques. Members of the centre are engaged in research studies investigating memory, attention/cognitive control, emotional processing and decision-making and have access to a range of research tools including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), electroencephalography (EEG), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
CNNI aims to advance applied research by combining neuropsychology and multimodal brain imaging. Members of the research centre are using brain stimulation and neurofeedback protocols to improve the treatment and management of mental illness and cognitive impairment. CNNI is involved in collaborative studies with King’s College London, University of Cambridge and Birkbeck, University of London and is an affiliated member of the Combined Universities Neuroimaging Centre (CUBIC: http://www.cubic.rhul.ac.uk).
