Cognitive neuroscience

About

The Cunnington laboratory studies how the brain processes sensory information, how attention and predictions influence our perception of this sensory information, how we make decisions based on this information and our previous states to prepare for our own actions, and how we carry out these actions. The group not only strives to make contributions to basic science research, but to also translate these findings into real-world settings such as the clinic and the classroom. 

To investigate these brain processes, the Cunnington group employs a wide variety of techniques including electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Recently, the group has been making use of a new ultra-high field (7 Tesla) MRI scanner at UQ to perform high-resolution imaging. Specifically, the group is using this scanner to examine the cortical processes underlying touch sensation and to examine the function of the fine circuitry of the basal ganglia, which are crucial for higher-order planning and control of voluntary movements. Complementing the use of ultra-high field MRI to study the functional activity within the basal ganglia, the group is also using diffusion MRI to map structural connections among the basal ganglia and cortex.

Other research in the group examines “mirroring” processes that are important for our ability to perceive and understand others. In association with the Australian Research Council’s Science of Learning Research Centre, the group is measuring biological markers of brain states between children in school classrooms and applying computational modeling to examine how shared engagement between children, down to the level of their mirrored neurological or brain states, may contribute to learning in group co-operative activities. In addition, the research group is examining neural mirroring and brain processes important for empathy, how these processes are disrupted in people suffering from depression, and potential therapies to target these processes.
