Cognition Research

Cognitive neuroscientists are investigating the higher order functions of the brain, underlying perception, cognition and consciousness. Questions we are exploring include:

  • How do we remember and forget?
  • How does attention improve cognitive performance?
  • Where is language processed and produced?
  • What is the neural substrate for the appreciation of music and other uniquely human attributes?
  • How do emotions influence they way we think and feel?
