The University of Queensland’s Centre for Perception and Cognitive Neuroscience (CPCN) is an interdisciplinary research centre housed in the school of Psychology. The CPCN is a catalyst for excellence in perceptual and cognitive neuroscience research in South East Queensland, Australia.
All members of the CPCN are engaged in cutting edge research covering diverse topics including attention, perception, consciousness, language, learning and memory, emotion, action, genetics and neurological pathology. The centre employs a range of research methods including behavioural, psychophysical, electrophysiological (EEG), transcranial stimulation (TMS), and brain imaging (fMRI) to provide converging evidence to investigate the links between the brain, cognition and behaviour.
The centre provides world-class graduate training, providing students with opportunities to conduct independent and collaborative research using state-of-the-art techniques and facilities. CPCN also is involved in the University of Queensland’s Summer and Winter Research Scholarship program, providing hands-on research internships for high-achieving undergraduate students from Australia and around the world.
The centre holds a weekly journal club to discuss the latest in perceptual and cognitive neuroscience research. For details, contact Dr. Stefanie Becker [firstname.lastname@example.org]
The CPCN annual workshop is the key event of the centre, showcasing the latest advances in perceptual and cognitive neuroscience research and methodology.
