School of Psychology - Leading psychological science, scholarship and practice

Cognitive Neuroscience Research Group

The Cognitive Neuroscience Research Group (CNRG) is based within the School of Psychology. It is also closely linked with the Centre for Brain Research.


We are comprised of members of staff and graduate students, all with a common interest in determining the biological bases of mental events in humans.

The purpose of the CNRG is to encourage collaborative research which will increase the likelihood of receiving substantial research funding. The CNRG also holds regular research meetings. We hope that postgraduate students working with members of the CNRG will benefit from the range of expertise provided, and will themselves contribute to our communal activities.

CNRG research is diverse, ranging from basic research on cognition and perception, to understanding the neural bases of cognition in healthy adults, to clinical research investigating neural and neuropsychological function in various patient populations.

Our research programmes utilise a variety of neuroimaging, cognitive and neuropsychological approaches.
