Neuropsychology

The science of neuropsychology studies the connection between psychological functions and the brain. This research area has expanded greatly in recent years and has seen dramatic progress in both methods and theories.

In our research, we use psychological tests and experimental methods together with neuroimaging techniques to investigate how mental functions are organised in the healthy brain and how certain personality characteristics, disorders and lesions influence the mind-brain system.

Much of our research focuses on the investigation of memory processes and systems, but we are also interested in emotion-processing, neurolinguistics, executive control and consciousness. In many studies we investigate cognitive functioning and brain plasticity over the life-span. The division has a strong profile in electrophysiology, with structural and functional MR techniques being used increasingly. Clinically, there is a tradition in research on dementia and memory disorders, but we also conduct projects on the neuropsychology of depression and anxiety.
