Center for Cognitive and Behavioral Brain Imaging
fMRI Image

The Center for Cognitive and Behavioral Brain Imaging (CCBBI) in the College of Arts and Sciences is a new state-of-the art interdisciplinary research facility dedicated to pursuing structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies.


It aims to contribute to the development of future brain imaging modalities and to create and disseminate knowledge about brain, mind, and imaging research.


The study of brain functioning and behavior (cognitive neuroscience), is one of the fastest growing fields in psychology and the social and biological sciences more generally. A major contributor to this growth is the development of innovative functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) technology.


With a Siemens 3T Prisma system and ancillary equipment to support research spanning the cognitive and behavioral sciences, CCBBI will be dedicated to the study of brain mechanisms underlying individuals’ cognitive capacity and subjective well-being, as well as dysfunctions of these brain mechanisms in normal aging and mental disorders.


CCBBI is open to all scholars exploring the relationship between the human brain and behavior. To arrange a tour of the center and the fMRI facilities, contact Stephanie Fowler, fowler.40@osu.edu or (614) 292-4679.
