At the Cognitive Brain Research Unit (CBRU), at University of Helsinki, we investigate human auditory and crossmodal cognition, as well as their impairments and plasticity. The main research areas are human language and music processes, their plasticity, and the development of auditory functions. Our laboratory serves both research and teaching purposes. CBRU is a part of the Department of Psychology and Logopedics, Faculty of Medicine, and Department of Education, Faculty of Educational Sciences. It also belongs to Centre of Excellence in Music, Mind, Body and Brain and to Cognitive Brain Laboratory, which is a HiLIFE research infrastructure platform.
