Neurobehavioural & Cognitive Science
Researchers at Maynooth University focus on understanding the neural basis of behaviour and how different cognitive processes operate both in states of health and disease.
Our researchers are exploring ways to measure chemical events in the brain in real time and are monitoring and modelling capacities such as memory, vision, language, intelligence, attitudes and circadian rhythms and exploring their roles in health and disease.
Maynooth University is an ideal Host Institution for a Marie Skłodowska Curie Individual Fellowship and this cluster is interested in finding potential applicants. Find a mentor below or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
