What We Do

Researchers in the Human Neuroscience Laboratory are discovering how the brain supports a variety of human cognitive processes, with a focus on episodic processing (such as those engaged during memory, future thinking, and divergent creative thinking). We do this by utilizing a variety of cognitive neuroscience techniques available in the laboratory, including:

  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)
  • Electrophysiology (EEG)
  • Functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS)
  • Psychophysiology
  • Eye-tracking
  • Behavioral measures

Not only do we conduct our own research, but another important mission of the Human Neuroscience Laboratory is to facilitate the research of anyone affiliated with the Human Neuroscience faculty of Boston College listed below. This includes collaboration on research projects and general consultation with research and design, analysis (e.g., functional magnetic resonance imaging analysis), and write-up on all topics related to human neuroscience. We also provide mentorship for undergraduate students aiming to complete senior thesis projects (e.g., Undergraduate Research (PSYC220550)). 

Human Neuroscience faculty

The Human Neuroscience Laboratory also provides training sessions for researchers (primarily Ph.D. students, postdoctoral fellows, and thesis writing undergraduate students) in the conduct of EEG, psychophysiology, eye-tracking, fNIRS, TMS, and fMRI analyses. 

The Human Neuroscience Laboratory houses shared research equipment (e.g., TMS). We have iLab calendars for booking shared research space and equipment.
