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 new Siemens 3T Trio functional magnetic resonance imaging (TIM) 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, firstname.lastname@example.org or (614)
