The Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory undertakes state-of-the-art research on the human mind, brain and behaviour.

Our goal is to advance knowledge on how the brain gives rise to our abilities as humans with its unique computational hardware.  These include performing complex tasks, memorising large quantities of information, making decisions, and communicating via language.

We seek to apply the insights we gained from our research to improving cognitive health and human performance.

Our laboratory’s approach is inherently interdisciplinary.  We have a broad network of national and international academic collaborators in various fields that complement our expertise, allowing us to tackle complex and significant research questions.

As well as our academic collaborations, we work with industry and end-user partners from a wide range of fields, applying our research to multiple levels of real-world challenges.  Our studies are conducted in a range of naturalistic environments involving whole-body action and immersion in augmented reality.
