Welcome to the Human Neuroimaging Group at the University of North Carolina!
The Human Neuroimaging Group is a group of interdisciplinary psychological scientists in the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill Department of Psychology and Neuroscience. Collectively, our research uses methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), positron emission tomography (PET), electroencephalography (EEG), behavioral genetics, and peripheral physiological measures (EKG, skin conductance) to address questions about the neural basis of human cognition, emotion, and behavior. Our faculty span traditional research areas including Behavioral and Integrative Neuroscience, Clinical Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Quantitative Psychology, and Social Psychology but we are united in our interest in unearthing the more basic neural mechanisms that contribute to healthy and disordered mental processes across the lifespan. For a list of specific faculty interests, see our Faculty.
The HNG offers a Human Neuroscience Graduate Concentration (HNGC) to PhD students enrolled in the Behavioral and Integrative Neuroscience, Clinical Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Quantitative Psychology, and Social Psychology graduate programs in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience. The HNG moreover supports Core Laboratories in Howell Hall aimed at providing state of the science tools for multimodal assessments of human behavior.
