Systems and Cognitive Neuroscience


The Systems and Cognitive Neuroscience program area supports research focused on higher brain functions that underlie complex behavioral phenomena such as learning, memory, attention, language, cognition, emotion, sensation/perception, movement, the wakefulness-sleep cycle, response to pain, and feeding. These phenomena depend on the integrated functioning of neural circuits and systems. Funded research involves human or animal subjects or computer models of neural circuits.  Research methods include non-invasive imaging of brain structure and function (e.g., EEG, MEG, PET, MRI) and advanced methods for recording neural structure and function associated with specific cognitive and behavioral processes in vivo and in vitro.
