Centre for Human Brain Health

We are a research facility with the mission to understand what makes a brain healthy, how to maintain health, and how to prevent and reverse damage.

Overview of our Research Facilities

  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

    Used by multiple users across the University, our Scanner produces detailed images of the brain using strong magnetic fields and radio waves

  • Magnetoencephalography (MEG)

    Studies the networks engaged in the human brain and allows for continuous recordings of ongoing brain activity of human subjects performing cognitive tasks

  • Electroencephalography (EEG)

    Evaluates the electrical activity in the brain with millisecond time resolution by tracking and recording brain wave patterns

  • Optically Pumped Magnetometers (OPM)

    Developing new technology that combines Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation with Optically Pumped Magnetometers

  • Functional near infrared (fNIRS)

    Detects variations in the blood oxygenation levels of activated brain areas and provide spatial maps of where changes occur

  • Sleep

    The sleep laboratory houses two sleeping suites and a central control room and measures brain activity during sleep using EEG methods

  • Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation

    Probes the links between brain and behaviour through increasing and decreasing excitability in targeted brain areas

  • CHBH Principal Investigators

    Meet the dedicated team working under the CHBH and their research remits
