Research at the Centre for Integrative Neuroscience and Neurodynamics (CINN) investigates the dynamical interactions that bring about human thought and behaviour – from the fast neural timescale of a few milliseconds, to the slow timescale of life-span development.
We use multi-modal imaging and multi-level computational modelling, and focus on the physiological and psychological mechanisms that underpin complex behaviour, targeting typical and atypical development across the life span. This places us in a unique position to contribute to dealing with global challenges such as safeguarding mental health, supporting neurodiversity, tackling obesity, slowing cognitive decline, and promoting healthy ageing.
We take a relentlessly interdisciplinary approach. Building on the excellence of our research in neuroscience, cognitive science and philosophy, systems biology, cybernetics, mathematics and statistics, psychology and language sciences, we collaborate with clinicians, educators, engineers, regulators and other public organisations to translate our work to societal benefit.
We prize and promote interdisciplinary training, providing our students and early career researchers with the skills and experience they need to develop a deeper understanding of the complex interdependence between physiology, cognition and wellbeing across the life span.
