The York Neuroimaging Centre (YNiC) is the hub of a multi-disciplinary approach to understanding the chemistry, structure and function of the human brain.
Our facilities include two 3-Tesla magnetic resonance imaging systems, whole-head magnetoencephalography, high-density electroencephalography, transcranial magnetic stimulation, transcranial direct current stimulation, a three-bedroom sleep lab and high-performance parallel computing.
We use cutting-edge neuroimaging methods to investigate a broad range of human brain functions including vision, memory, language, emotion and sleep. Our overarching aim is to use this research to gain new insights into the fundamental biology of health and disease.

We have used neuroimaging to study the human brain since 2005
Research and development opportunities
YNiC offers a range of research training opportunities for the next generation of brain scientists.
We provide a stimulating and multidisciplinary training environment through our postgraduate degree programmes and have welcomed a number of independent research fellows pursuing their own research activities.
Join our network of volunteers to help us better understand the chemistry, physiology and psychology of human brain function.
