York Neuroimaging Centre

Bridging the gap between human brain function and our understanding of the mind. 

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.
