Research @ CIMeC

The Center for Mind/Brain Sciences (CIMeC) is a cutting-edge research center in the area of cognitive neurosciences, dedicated not only to the description and understanding of cerebral functioning under normal conditions, but also to discovering innovative strategies for preventing and treating neurological pathologies which could compromise it. The combination of basic research, research inspired by use and translational research puts the Centre in a privileged position, both for what concerns the training of future researchers of neuroscience as well as the rapid transfer of highly innovative scientific results into  daily practice. 

Doctoral students have opportunities to enter the workforce precisely because they become autonomous figures capable of developing and managing complete research projects in their various phases, ranging from theoretical hypotheses to the design of tests or experiments, to the collection of data through the most appropriate technologies, to the analysis of the data, up to the discussion of thesis in relation to the knowledge in the research field and to the specific starting scientific hypothesis. Students ultimately learn to translate research work into scientific publications. All these skills allow at the end of the doctoral path to enter the research sector competitively and highly professionally.

The Laboratory of Functional Neuroimaging (LNiF) aims to improve and apply functional neuroimaging methods to study the normal and pathological brain.

The Center of Neurocognitive Rehabilitation (CeRiN) is the clinical research unit of the CIMeC. It focuses on the daignosis and rehabilitation of behavioral and cognitive neurological disorders in patients with brain injury.

CIMeC Language, Interaction & Computation Lab (CLIC) is an interdisciplinary group of researchers applying computational and cognitive methods to explore multimodal communication, adaptive interfaces, and the use of semantic and encyclopedic knowledge in communication.

Animal Cognition and Neuroscience Lab (ACN) is the study of mental processes and their neurobiological bases in a comparative perspective.

The Experimental Psychology Laboratories (EPL) comprise an interdisciplinary group of researchers using traditional and innovative paradigms to investigate the neural basis of human language and thought and address the central problems of cognitive neuroscience, including perception, attention, learning, memory, language, decision-making, emotion and development.
