The Center for Cognitive Neuroscience Berlin (CCNB) is an institution within the Department of Education and Psychology of the Freie Universität Berlin. The CCNB supports neurocognitive research and teaching at the department and provides research facilities for scientists from a wide range of disciplines, for example the humanities, imaging genetics, neuroscience, neuropharmacology, neurolinguistics, neuroeconomics, neurology, psychology, and psychiatry.
Research at the CCNB spans all aspects of cognitive neuroscience, including investigations of the neural basis of sensory perception, decision making, action planning, emotion, language, and social interactions. In addition to exploring the neural mechanisms underlying human behavior, the CCNB is active in developing new techniques for non-invasive imaging data acquisition and analysis that aim to expand our ability to understand the neural basis of cognition.
The CCNB comprises research groups based in the Department of Education and Psychology and affiliated research groups at different institutions in the wider Berlin area.
