The Center of Brain and Cognition at Pompeu Fabra University integrates researchers from different disciplines with the unified vision to foster the understanding of cognitive neuroscience.
CBC scientists are working to advance our understanding of how experience influences the emergence of function and structure through computational and experimental investigation. We are interested in understanding how mechanisms regulating brain development interact with the effects of experience to produce the structural and functional characteristics of the brain. These lines of research clarify how specific biological mechanisms routinely support the emergence of cognitive functions, leading to insights into why experience is so important for normal brain development.
In summary, the research mission of the CBC includes the investigation of a variety of fundamental issues aimed at answering one central question: How is the mind organised and how does its organisation arise from the biology of the brain?
A second goal of the CBC is to contribute to society by applying the results of our research. To this end, we draw on financial and structural support from relevant firms in the private sector and collaborations with industry and institutional partners (e.g., hospitals and universities).
We envision the CBC to be a highly influential international reference of research excellence concerning the interplay between cognition and the brain in both scientific and social realms.
