WELCOME TO THE STAGLIN CENTER FOR COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE
The Staglin One Mind Center for Cognitive Neuroscience facilitates interdisciplinary research and educational activities related to the study of psychological processes, behaviors and disorders thereof. The Center, a partnership between the UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior and the Department of Psychology in UCLA's Division of Life Sciences, is directed by Dr. Susan Bookheimer, Joaquin Fuster Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience, who holds faculty appointments with both partners.
The Center operates an advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) laboratory equipped for anatomical, functional, diffusion-weighted, and spectroscopic imaging, and is equipped with an integrated electroencephalography (EEG) laboratory, as well as a Low Intensity Focused Ultrasound (LIFUP) laboratory.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Study participants may be asked to undergo an MRI, EEG, Ultrasound, or a combination of the three, as well as various screening and behavioral questionnaires. Your study team will provide all necessary information for you.
HOW TO PREPARE
If undergoing an MRI study, please make sure you are fully transparent with your study team about your medical history. Any and all implants or devices must be disclosed to research staff so that more in-depth screening can take place. This is for YOUR safety! If you have an implant, you may be asked to provide copies of your medical history or communications with your physician or surgeon.
