The Centre for Human Brain Health (CHBH)
Organisational unit: Centre
The Centre for Human Brain Health (CHBH) is an interdisciplinary brain research facility established with the mission of understanding what makes a brain healthy, how to maintain it, and how to prevent and reverse damage. The Centre is home to state-of-the-art brain imaging facilities, which are used to uncover the mechanisms supporting cognition in both the healthy and the dysfunctional brain.
The vision of the CHBH is to cross the boundaries of traditional academic and clinical disciplines to transform our understanding of the human brain. We recognise that to achieve the goal of personalised brain health we must first identify what constitutes a healthy brain, and how lifestyle, developmental, and societal factors interact and contribute to this endeavour.
We use our multidisciplinary expertise and state-of-the-art technology to identify the key factors for maintaining a healthy brain. To do this, we are developing and applying advanced neuroimaging techniques, including the development of new sensor technology, to characterise brain structure and function, combined with experimental and lifestyle interventions to enhance brain health across the lifespan.
