Cognitive neuroscience

Brainy womanScientists at the Rotman Research Institute (RRI) are investigating fundamental questions about memory, aging and the neuroscience of cognition. Their work has shaped the fundamental understanding of human cognitive function, and will continue to impact approaches to the enhancement, preservation and remediation of cognitive change over the lifespan. 

Frontal lobes and memory research

The RRI is internationally known for basic cognitive neuroscience research on human memory and, in particular, the role of the medial temporal lobe and frontal lobe in encoding and retrieval of semantic, episodic, and autobiographical memories.
