Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience

The Center for Cognitive Neuroscience is part of the Neuroscience and Behavioral Disorders (NBD) Program.

The Center brings together five research labs, cutting across disciplines and techniques to explore the neural bases of human behaviour. Current themes explored by the centre include: (i) investigating the neurobehavioral effects of sleep loss and circadian misalignment, (ii) functional and structural aspects of cognitive aging in healthy elderly, (iii) detecting and improving outcomes in neurobehavioral disorders, and (iv) understanding perception and consciousness.

Centre Facilities

Centre members have access to a research-dedicated Siemens Tim Trio 3T MR scanner, high density electroencephalography (EEG), EEG-fMRI equipment, and eye-tracking devices. The imaging group has direct access to a computing cluster comprising 20 cores and close to 40TB of shared disc space. We have shared access to the Duke-NUS computing cluster comprising 230 cores.
