HEADBOX LAB

headbo-logo-onlyHEADBOX lab aims to understand the biological bases of human behaviour and cognition.  We use psychophysiology and psychopharmacology to generate new knowledge on brain function and assess how complementary therapies affect neurocognition.  A range of ground-breaking research projects are underway across several clinical areas including mild cognitive impairment, dementia, and cardiovascular disease.  HEADBOX lab offers the exciting opportunity to work with a multidisciplinary team using cutting-edge research techniques including electrophysiology and ultrasonography.  We also have a vibrant fundamental science research stream investigating novel biomarkers for dementia, how brain function changes with age, and how our brain state affects task performance.
