Human Cognition & Sensorimotor Core
The foundational goal of the Human Cognition and Sensorimotor Core (HCSC) is to advance our understanding of how the brain gives rise to complex human behaviour. We are a key node in Western’s neuroscience community, linking basic, clinical, and translational research across Western and the wider London research community.
Current priorities of the HCSC include:
- developing methods to study human cognitive neuroscience in real-world situations of diverse populations, as real-world validity is arguably the ultimate goal of human research, and maximizes significance, impact, and relevance;
- building stronger links with clinical communities to inform them of relevant studies, and to support clinical research and training;
- increasing community engagement through OurBrainsCAN and the Centre for the Science of Learning; and
- strengthening collaborative bonds with the Computational Core to break new ground in analytical methods for the rich data arising from our cognitive neuroscience investigations.
