Integrative Cognitive Neuroscience Lab (ICON Lab)

Research group

Short description

The fields of cognitive neuroscience and neuropsychology study the relationship between brain and behavior.

Research area

A common theme in the ICON Lab is to answer questions about how the brain produces (and is shaped by) thoughts, emotions, and behavior, and how the brain relates to mental health. This theme is by nature interdisciplinary and research in this field often requires collaboration between psychologist and medical doctors to successfully apply methods such as brain imaging and cognitive tests in studies of both healthy volunteers and patients. Our research has a focus on the plasticity of the brain during learning, aging of the brain in relation to memory performance, and how cognition and emotion are affected in neurological and psychiatric conditions.
