Cognitive and Neural Systems

The scientific goal of the Centre of Cognitive and Neural Systems is to understand information processing by the central and peripheral nervous systems at several different levels of analysis, from cognitive psychology through cognitive neuroscience and brain imaging, behavioural neuroscience and neuropharmacology, and extending to theoretical models of neuronal networks. Research groups focus on: human cognitive neuroscience (including ageing); the neurobiology of learning, memory and plasticity (focusing on hippocampus and cortex); the processing of nociceptive somatosensory information, cerebrovascular physiology and pharmacology; the consequences of drug action, including drugs of abuse.
