Manchester Neuroimaging

World-class expertise in pre-clinical, clinical, and cognitive neuroscience


Manchester Neuroimaging is a network of Manchester researchers who use imaging to investigate brain structure and function.

We use a wide range of neuroimaging methodologies and benefit from state-of the art facilities. Our research spans the entire translational pipeline, with world-class expertise in preclinical, clinical, and cognitive neuroscience.

The University promotes high-quality research through a range of imaging and brain stimulation facilities available to PIs and students for research projects.


Located across various University and NHS Foundation Trust sites, our advanced imaging facilities within the Division of Informatics, Imaging and Data Sciences support a range of imaging techniques and are available for researchers to use across a variety of projects. Click here to find out more.


The Manchester Brain Stimulation Lab is run by the Division of Neuroscience and Experimental Psychology and uses transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to study the relationship between brain and behaviour such as memory and language.

EEG lab

Located within the Division of Neuroscience and Experimental Psychology, the EEG lab uses electroencephalography to record and study electrical activity in the brain with high temporal resolution.
