About the Centre



Birmingham University Imaging Centre (BUIC) is an inter-disciplinary research centre dedicated to the study of the human brain, and is a collaboration between the Schools of Psychology, Medicine and Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation Sciences. Research at BUIC converges around the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), with a strong focus on combining MRI with other techniques such as electroencephalography (EEG) and transcranial magnetic and direct current stimulation (TMS/TDCS).


Our diverse interests range from studying the basic science of sensory processing, to motor control, memory, eating behaviours, sleep and development across the lifespan. We also have strong links with the local Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Barberry National Centre for Mental Health, facilitating clinical research into neuropsychiatric and neurological disorders such as schizophrenia, psychosis, epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, dementia and sleep disorders.

Glyn Humphreys

It is with great sadness that we hear that Professor Glyn Humphreys passed away on the 14th of January 2016. Glyn was the driving force behind the establishment of BUIC, and its founding Director. He was a great inspiration both professionally and personally to those who knew him, and will be sorely missed. Our thoughts are with his family and his many friends and colleagues. http://www.glynwhumphreys.memorial
