The Laboratory of Cognitive Neurobiology at Boston University is a 2500 sf facility with testing rooms for electrophysiology studies using high density data acquisition systems, behavioral experiments, and calcium imaging systems . In addition, the lab also has several common spaces: a workshop area for construction of multichannel electrode recording devices, workstations for post hoc data analysis, dedicated histological room, and a surgical suite for two simultaneous procedures.

Currently the Laboratory of Cognitive Neurobiology consists of the lab director, Howard Eichenbaum, post doctoral research associates, multiple graduate students, full-time technicians, and many undergraduate assistants.  For a full listing, please visit our People page.
