Barcelona BrainLab - Cognitive Neuroscience Research Group

The Barcelona Brainlab (BBL), led by Prof. Carles Escera, belongs to the Research Institiute for Brain, Cognition and Behavior (IR3C) of the University of Barcelona (UB), and to its Department of Psychiatry and Clinical Psychobiology, Faculty of Psychology, where it is located. The BBL seeks to unravel the cerebral mechanisms of cognitive functions, from attention and auditory perception to working memory and executive control. We are also interested in emotional processing and in cognitive dysfunction in a broad spectrum of neurological, neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders. To achieve our goals, we use a multidisciplinary approach based mainly in the recording of the human electroencephalogram (EEG) to analyze event-related brain potentials (such as the mismatch negativity -MMN) and oscillatory brain activity (such as the gamma band response -GBR), in combination with magnetoencephalography (MEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and neurogenetic analysis.
