The UEA Wellcome-Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre (UWWBIC) is an interdisciplinary centre for neuroimaging excellence.
We provide crucial brain imaging research facilities that significantly boost research capacity and quality at UEA and across the Anglian region.
Our research-dedicated MRI facilities and integrated imaging technologies are used by over 70 scientists from the UEA Schools of Psychology, Medicine and Health Sciences, and external researchers from across the region.
UEA’s research projects are split across these five themes:
- Methods and Modelling
- Developmental Dynamics
- Cognitive Neuroscience
- Brain Plasticity
- Healthy Ageing and Dementia
Our research profile across this range of disciplines places the UEA in a unique position to answer fundamental questions about how the human brain works and how it is affected by disease.
