Brain Cognition Computing Lab

Welcome to BC²

The BC² (Brain | Cognition | Computing) laboratory is a research laboratory based at the University of Kent, Medway Campus. Led by Dr. Caroline Li at the School of Computing, BC² is designed to enhance interdisciplinary collaboration in brain research. The BC² Lab aims to form the experiment base for the research activities in the area of brain science, brain computer interface, brain signal processing, computational neuroscience, cognitive science and other areas where studies of brain and cognition play central roles. It is also a base for training undergraduates, graduates, postdocs, and visiting scholars in the measurement and analysis of brain data, behavioral measurements and physiological measurements. Our current research partners include School of Sports and Exercise Sciences, School of Arts and the NHS, amongst others.
