Cognition and brain science
Our research covers a diverse range of topics and seeks to understand human cognition and its biological basis.
We explore questions ranging from fundamental studies of how people think, feel, remember and understand, to applied studies of cognition and memory in healthy, pathological ageing, and clinical populations.
Our methodological approaches to research are similarly diverse and include functional and structural neuroimaging, electrophysiological, brain stimulation, and cognitive techniques.
In addition to our collaborative research relationships within the School and across the University, we maintain strong connections with collaborators throughout New Zealand and internationally. Many of our researchers in this area have affiliations with the Centre for Brain Research and the Brain Research New Zealand Centre of Research Excellence.
