The Neurobiology Department MCB JU

The Neurobiology Centre team is conducting the cognitive neuroscience research with the use of the functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), diffusion tensor tractography (DTI), dense-array electroencephalography (dEEG) and oculography (OG).

The studies conducted within the Centre are investigating the neural indicators of error detection, conflict monitoring, risk assessment, learning, memory distortions, and other complex cognitive and affective processes crucial for developing neuroadaptive systems. The neuronal indices are analyzed in relation to individual and contextual factors, such as emotional and motivational state, temperament, fatigue, sleepiness, sleep deprivation, diurnal rhythm and chronotype. The second area of research conducted within the Department concerns the dual role of blue light – effects of the short wavelength visible light on circadian regulation, neural aspects of cognitive and affective functioning, and on the light contribution to degeneration and pathologies of the retina.
