Researchers studying cognitive neuroscience aim to improve our understanding of the biological mechanisms that give rise to behavior and cognition.  Over the last few decades the development of neuroimaging technologies has catalyzed progress in cognitive neuroscience, providing scientists with a window into the brain and mind.

Here at the Cognitive Neuroimaging Center (CNC), we bring together a multidisciplinary team of researchers to increase our understanding of brain function by linking across multiple levels. The CNC is home to several state-of-the-art facilities including a brand new 3T Siemens MAGNETOM Prisma MRI scanner.

The CNC is part of a larger community of collaborative neuroscience research at BU. Along with the Center for Systems Neuroscience, the CNC is located in the newly constructed Rajen Kilachand Center for Integrated Life Science and Engineering – a building that was designed to encourage collaboration across disciplines.
