Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience (CCN) broadly focus in research in areas of perception and memory, broadly. Not only how information is stored in memory, but also how prior information influence and shape perception.
- Expertise, memory, and attention
- The nature of synaesthesia
- The influence of behavioural and substance addiction
- Multisensory perception and food psychology
History and network
CCN was established in the fall of 2012 and conducts experimental research in several areas of interests such as perception and attention, emotions, body awareness, executive functions, visual memory, and consciousness. Research is directed on both healthy participants and patients with a variety of neuropsychological disorders.
In spite of such varieties in the exact topic of investigation, all aspects of research share the goal to provide research where developments at one “level of description” sheds light on our understanding of phenomena at different levels of description.
Research is conducted by applying a wide range of methodological tools including behavioural measures, neuroimaging techniques such as EEG/ERPs and fMRI, eye-tracking, autonomic responses, animal models, and clinical neuropsychological assessment.
The centre operates in close collaboration with its associated research centres and institutes here in Denmark, particularly, CNRU – Aarhus University, and UCN and ReCBIR – University of Copenhagen. Members of CCN will in most cases also be member of one or more of the associated centres.
