Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory

Neuroscience is a science that is based on the exploration of the nervous system. Today, neuroscience, traditionally regarded as a branch of biology, has gained a multidisciplinary structure where medicine, biology, chemistry, mathematics, Engineering, Physics, and psychology disciplines work together. The central nervous system (brain, cerebellum, medulla oblongata, spinal cord), peripheral nervous system (other nerve pathways in the body, the nerves that leave the spinal cord) and neural transmission between nerve cells, neural networks, sensory systems, motor control, learning, memory, attention, emotions, the etiopathogenesis of psychiatric and neurological disorders are among the related issues of neuroscience. In terms of a bit more specificity in such an extensive area, Neuroscience is divided into several sub areas. Cognitive Neuroscience is a sub-branch of neuroscience through which psychologists, neurologists, psychiatrists and neuroscientists generally working on brain are able to understand neural networks, "what" and "where" networks, memory, executive function, social cognition and decision-making, and aim to interpret diseases of these structures by using neuropsychological tests, or electroencephalogram, or other brain imaging methods.

In Üsküdar University Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory, many studies with patients and healthy controls are being conducted on responses of the brain in terms of cognitive functions, with emphasis on social neuroscience. Our laboratory also successfully conducts neuro-economy and neuro-marketing studies with expert neuroscience staff for private sector.

Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory 100 m2 alana sahiptir.
