This theme focuses on the cognitive and neural mechanisms determining human behaviour and their changes in behavioural and brain dysfunction. Group members combine a range of approaches including behavioural studies, brain imaging (fMRI, MEG, EEG) and brain intervention (direct brain stimulation, patient-based lesion studies, pharmacological studies).
Oxford Neuroscience is represented by a thriving research community based across a number of departments in the University, with interests spanning molecular medicine to cognitive science. With this large concentration of resources and a wide range of research and teaching expertise, two innovative graduate courses are offered: the four-year.
The Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience (ICN) PhD students are based in a truly interdisciplinary institute. The ICN is situated within the School of Life and Medical Sciences with staff members belonging to different research divisions and departments.
Behavioural and Cognitive Neuroscience (Beacon) Seminar: Neural computations underlying the arbitration between multiple systems for behavioral control in humans; Behavioural and Cognitive Neuroscience (Beacon) Seminar: Neural Circuits of Cognition in Artificial and Biological Neural Networks.
The University of Manchester is regulated by the Office for Students (OfS). The OfS aims to help students succeed in Higher Education by ensuring they receive excellent information and guidance, get high quality education that prepares them for the future and by protecting their interests.

Oxford Computational Neuroscience; Oxford Computational Neuroscience. Our work focuses on the nature of thought, consciousness and cognition. We examine brain structure and operation, specifically of neuronal and cortical mechanisms, to determine and model the underlying physiological process of perception, decision making and language. We seek to use these insights to provide earlier.
We also collaborate with other Oxford Departments to study the effects of genetic, pharmacological or nutritional differences. Using this approach we can further understand the brain pathways involved in specific behavioural processes, and identify new ways of maintaining brain health.
The Institute for Neuroscience has clinicians and scientists working together to understand the brain and behaviour. From the basic biology of neurons through to complex processes of perception and decision-making behaviour, we address how the mind, brain, and body work together and translate this knowledge into clinical applications for patient benefit.
Students interested in the Cognitive Neuroscience Triple PhD must meet the above course and thesis requirements. The student’s thesis advisor must be a participating faculty member of the Cognitive Neuroscience faculty. To enroll in this triple degree, you must enroll in the Neuroscience Program and the Cognitive Science Program as well as.
Researchers in this Cognitive Neuroscience programme at the University College London (UCL) examine how the human brain accomplishes perception, memory, cognition, language, consciousness and action. A leading principle is the tight integration of behavioural methods with various cutting-edge approaches to record and manipulate ongoing brain activity.
Haya is a PhD student with a background in clinical and cognitive neuroscience. She is funded by an independent BRUK fellowship to improve recovery in patients left with speech production difficulties after a stroke. To do this, she uses methods of non-invasive brain stimulation, specifically transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS.
I use a combination of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) at 3T and 7T, psychophysics, and computational modelling. I am member of the Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre where I do my scanning. I also teach many MSc Cognitive Neuroscience modules. Dr Denis Schluppeck, Course Director.
Researchers now use neuroscience tools to (a) advance our theoretical understanding of age-related cognitive changes; (b) to understand individual differences among older adults in patterns of brain structure or function associated with more or less preserved cognitive performance; (c) to identify biomarkers of pathological aging; and (d) to.
Neuroscience and mental health Cognitive neuroscience. Cognitive neuroscience explores how the brain supports the cognitive processes that drive our thoughts, memories, communication, decision-making and action. Our research investigates cognitive and brain models, and asks how groups of neurons, entire brain structures and networks of brain.
We want to understand how - and why - brain function can be disturbed to lead to poor memory and loss of motivation (apathy). Our aim is to develop new treatments for these conditions across a range of neurological disorders.
Topic: The future of fMRI in cognitive neuroscience. Abstract: Cognitive neuroscience has witnessed two decades of rapid growth, thanks in large part to the continued development of fMRI methods. In my talk, I will question what this work has told us about brain function, and will propose that cognitive neuroscience needs to change in at least.
