welcomeThe Center for Cognitive Neuroscience and Engineering (CENCE) is a multidisciplinary research center aimed at understanding the relation between cognitive abilities and neural systems through brain imaging, brain mapping, computational modeling, informatics, and engineering techniques.
The center’s research focus in cognitive neuroscience and engineering spans a wide range of methods involving human and animal work, and engineering techniques, such as BCI, BMI, biorobotics, computational neuroscience, neuroinformatics, neuromorphic engineering, neurorobotics, signal processing, image analysis and mathematical models of brain data.
The center comprises core faculty members in multiple Schools and Departments across the University of California, Irvine campus. Participating schools include the School of Social Sciences, School of Biological Sciences, School of Medicine, Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Science, and The Henry Samueli School of Engineering. Participating departments include Cognitive Sciences, Computer Science, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Neurobiology and Behavior, Neurology, Biomedical Engineering, and Anatomy and Neurobiology.
