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 neuroimaging 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.
The UEA Wellcome-Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre is located on the ground floor of the Lawrence Stenhouse Building (NR4 7TU) on the main UEA Campus.
Please do no arrive for your brain scan without an appointment.
The Lawrence Stenhouse Building is just off Chancellors Drive (the main east-west route across campus).
