Scope and function:

  • Swinburne University of Technology brings together different disciplines with common interests in biopsychosocial factors associated with the healthy and dysfunctional human mind and brain. This is a new facility that has received considerable investment from the university, Victorian State Government and Commonwealth funding.


  • Our state of the art neuroimaging facility includes magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Magnetoencephalography (MEG), electroencephalography (EEG), trans-cranial magnetic simulation (TMS), a radiofrequency (RF) laboratory, and a computation neuroscience laboratory. Researchers at the university will be conducting research in the study of cognition, cognitive development and decision-making, and brain functions, connectivity, and mechanisms in healthy and disordered brains.
