Cognitive Brain Research Unit

At the Cognitive Brain Research Unit (CBRU), located at the Institute of Behavioural Sciences, we address human auditory and crossmodal cognition, as well as their impairments and plasticity. The main research areas are human language and music processes, the development of auditory skills, and the effects of aging on auditory perception.

We utilize modern brain research methods in our interdisciplinary work, which is carried out with an international and national collaboration network. Since 1995 CBRU has been selected several times as the Center of Excellence (the Academy of Finland: 1995-1999 and 2002-2007; University of Helsinki: 1997-2001). 2008-2013 the Brain and Music team of CBRU belonged to the Centre of Excellence in Interdisciplinary Music Research coordinated by the University of Jyväskylä.
