Bangor’s Cognitive Neuroscience Institute comprises approximately 20 academics who carry out leading-edge research across diverse aspects of human cognition. The Institute’s research addresses fundamental questions and real-world challenges, in healthy individuals, in a range of disorders, and at all stages of life. We use a wide range of specialised facilities and techniques, including fMRI (using the School’s research-dedicated MRI scanner), brain stimulation (TMS and tDCS), EEG, Eye Tracking, and Motion Capture, along with numerous bespoke experimental devices, and a large number of behavioural and psychophysical techniques.
Research in the Institute is closely affiliated with the Bangor Imaging Unit, and is carried out under three main themes: (i) Social Cognition and Neuroscience
(ii) Perception and Action
(iii) Language, literacy and bilingualism
