Brain Dynamics Laboratory


As of November 1st, 2017, the High-Performance Electrical Neuroimaging Laboratory has been changed to Brain Dynamics Laboratory to better describe the full range of methods that are used and the questions that are addressed in the lab. For instance, methods used at the lab include :

  • High-Performance Electrical Neuroimaging (HPEN)
  • Eye-tracking
  • Psychophysics
  • Neuropsychopharmacology
  • fMRI analyses

Mission of the Brain Dynamics Laboratory

The main goal of The University of Chicago Brain Dynamics Laboratory of the Center for Cognitive and Social Neuroscience is to advance the scientific knowledge of the spatiotemporal dynamics of the social brain.

Combining high-performance electrical neuroimaging, algorithms integrating brain source localization, noise suppression and boostrapping with high performance computing, and other methods the Brain dynamics laborator offers cutting edge tools for the study of brain dynamics in social species.

The emphasis is placed on converging resources, sharing data and protocols and integrating scientific theoretical knowledge and methodologies from four main disciplinary fields: High Performance Computing (HPC), Psychology, Psychiatry, Neurology, and Cognitive and Social Neuroscience.

The ultimate mission of the lab is to create an open access scientific community with new interdisciplinary learning opportunities in social neuroscience, electrical neuroimaging and super computing for scientists, students, and teachers.
