Group of researchers standing under a willow tree

The Physiological Neuroimaging Group (PiNG) is headed by Professor Charlotte Stagg and was founded in 2014.

Our group uses multimodal approaches to understand physiological changes in the brain, both in the context of learning of novel motor skills and in a range of neurological conditions. To do this we use MR Spectroscopy, MR Imaging, Magnetoencephaolography (MEG) and Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation.

Ultimately we hope to understand more about how the brain adapts to new challenges, so that we can develop new adjunctive therapies for recovery.

We are jointly based at the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging, between FMRIB and OHBA. We are part of the Neuroplastics Collaborative Network, which also includes the Plasticity Group headed by Heidi Johansen-Berg and the Action, Cognition & Neurotherapeutics Group headed by Jacinta O'Shea. The three groups work together on research projects as well as public outreach activities.
