CRANIUM’s aim is to stimulate the next phase of development of neuroimaging methodology for translational neuroscience applications in human health and disease.The hub of CRANIUM is the Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre (CUBRIC) with its human brain imaging techniques all under one roof: Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Magnetoencephalography (MEG), Electroencophalography (EEG) and Trans-cranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS).CRANIUM addresses three themes: Integration of multiple neuroimaging modalities, Experimentally informed mathematical modelling of brain structure and function. Enhanced image quantitation The doctoral research projects will be experimentally focussed with a strong bias towards physical science methodology applied to biological systems.
The creative resources of PhD students will be harnassed to understand signals from the mammalian nervous system and to develop neuroimaging methods that will be adopted by animal and human neuroscience researchers across the world. The programme will prepare postgraduates for a research career in biomedical imaging and neuroscience, with the flexibility to take on new techniques as they develop. Beyond academic research, there is increasing demand for experts who understand the measurement techniques applied to biological systems in the biotech, pharmaceutical and healthcare industries.
