CIMeC’s researchers study brain organization via the analysis of its functional, structural and psychological characteristics, in both normal and pathological conditions.
The CIMeC is organized in five formal structures defined as Facilities (For further information see the main menu "Research Facilities") in addition to collaborative Laboratories. In order to investigate the neural correlates of behavior the Center makes use of state-of-the-art neuroimaging and neurobiological methodologies.
In addition, the CeRiN - Center for Neurocognitive Rehabilitation specializes in the study of clinical cases.
CIMeC belongs to the young, vibrant academic community of the University of Trento, a medium-sized university that stands at the top of her category for the quality of research.
