At the BMU, our core interest is using advanced brain scanning techniques, principally magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), to map the structure and function of the human brain.
We are particularly interested in mapping normal memory and learning, ageing, drug effects on brain function, and neuropsychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, autism and depression. We also have a strong technical focus on graph theory, network analysis and other statistical methods for analysis and visualization of the large and complex datasets involved in brain mapping.
The Brain Mapping Unit is part of the University Department of Psychiatry and was set up in 1999 when Ed Bullmore was appointed to a new Professorship of Psychiatry. Since then the Unit has grown in size and now includes about 20 people, including the Systems and Computational Neuroscience Group run by Dr Petra Vertes, and the AI for Brain Sciences Group run by Dr Sarah Morgan.
We have a broad network of collaborations across a range of departments and institutes in Cambridge as well as numerous groups across the world.
