Welcome to the CCN
Penn's Center for Cognitive Neuroscience is a multidisciplinary community dedicated to understanding the neural bases of human thought. Our current research addresses the central problems of cognitive neuroscience, including perception, attention, learning, memory, language, decision-making, emotion and development.
Our methods are equally diverse, and include functional neuroimaging, behavioral testing of neurological and psychiatric patients, transcranial and direct current magnetic stimulation, scalp-recorded event-related potentials, intracranial recording, computational modeling, candidate gene studies and pharmacologic manipulations of cognitive processes.
The 2016-2017 Interdisciplinary Seminar Series is here! click here to see our upcoming speakers.
