The Center for Cognitive Neuroscience Berlin (CCNB) at Freie Universität Berlin is an interdisciplinary research center devoted to the study of the neurobiology of the human mind. The center is situated in the Department of Education and Psychology and hosts a number of research groups and neuroscience laboratories.

Interdisciplinary Research

Research at the CCNB covers all aspects of cognitive neuroscience, including sensory systems and perception, decision making, and motor control. In addition, several research groups investigate the neural underpinnings of emotion, language, and social interactions. In collaboration with Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin, research at the CCNB also extends to the clinical context.
