About us

In 2000, the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM) founded the Dr. Pérez-Modrego Magnetoencephalography Center, a pioneer laboratory for the study of the neural basis of Alzheimer Disease, epilepsy, mental disorders and cognitive processes. During almost ten years this was a good breeding ground for the growth of a group of researchers interested in understanding the biological basis of cognition and its disorders.

In 2009, on the basis of the previous experience with the Magnetoencephalography Center, the Technical University of Madrid and the Complutense University of Madrid joined efforts and created the Laboratory of Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience (LNCyC) as one of the core laboratories of the recently established Center for Biomedical Technology. Under the direction of Fernando Maestú, psychologists, physicists, engineers and medical doctors work together to increase our knowledge about how brain connectivity support cognitive functions and its disorders.
