Cognitive Neuroscience Unit

As part of the School of Psychology, the Cognitive Neuroscience Unit (CNU) uses cutting-edge human neuroscience techniques to investigate the relationship between brain function, behavior, and cognition among healthy and clinical populations. There are currently 25 staff and students working within the CNU.

We employ a range of modern neuroscience techniques at the Melbourne Burwood Campus, including:

  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)
  • Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS)
  • Electroencephalography (EEG)
  • Electromyography (EMG)
  • Eye tracking
  • Near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS)
  • Gait analysis walkway

We also conduct neuroimaging research (eg fMRI, PET) at nearby facilities. 

If you are interested in taking part in any of our studies, please contact Ms. Charlotte Davies ( 

There are numerous opportunities for students to conduct fourth year and postgraduate research within the CNU. If you would like to discuss these opportunities, please contact Associate Prof Peter Enticott.
