The mission of the MRC CBU is to improve human health by understanding and enhancing cognition and behaviour in health, disease, and disorder. We aim to achieve this by:
- conducting innovative research spanning childhood through to older age that advances understanding of human cognition and its impact on behaviour;
- developing integrated explanations of human behaviour and its disorders that link cognition with the brain and other biological systems;
- translating discoveries in cognitive neuroscience into preventative, therapeutic, and educational interventions.
