Brain and Cognitive Sciences


The members of Brain and Cognitive Science are interested in the mental processes and brain structures that are involved in movement, perception, learning, memory and understanding language. We study how these capabilities emerge during infancy, how they change as the brain matures and ages, and how they are affected when the brain is injured. Our goal is to understand behaviour and cognition at the level of neurons, networks of neurons and cognitive systems.
