Our mission

Our mission

The mission of the 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.
