Cognitive Neuroimaging Laboratory

Brain Banner

The Cognitive Neuroimaging Laboratory is part of the Center for Memory and Brain and the Department of Psychology at Boston University. Research in our laboratory focuses on mapping the human brain using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Our primary goal is to study how the normal brain encodes, maintains, and retrieves visual, spatial, and verbal information. In addition to studies of normal short-term and long-term memory processes, we are currently using behavioral testing and fMRI to study normal aging and Parkinson’s disease.

Graduate students in the Cognitive Neuroimaging Laboratory carry out their research through the Brain, Behavior, and Cognition program, Graduate Program in Neuroscience, and the Clinical Psychology program at Boston University. fMRI data are collected at the Harvard Center for Brain Science and the Massachusetts General Hospital Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging.
