Cognitive Neuroscience

We have a vibrant community of Cognitive Neuroscientists in the Psychology department and other departments at Ohio State. Various labs use the 3T Siemens Trio MRI scanner at the Center for Cognitive and Behavioral Brain Imaging (CCBBI) ) or the department's new world-class EEG facility with two electromagnetically-shielded and sound-attenuated testing rooms, each with its own Brain Products active-electrode EEG system, to study perception, memory, decision making, development, and clinical conditions. If you are interested in pursuing cognitive neuroscience for your graduate studies, then please contact the relevant faculty and apply to the respective area in the Psychology graduate program. Regular MRI Users Meetings are a forum for the exchange of ideas and expertise within our community, and for the influx of new ideas from invited speakers.
