Dr Adrian Owen is the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Cognitive Neuroscience and Imaging at The Brain and Mind Institute, Western University, Canada.
Our research combines neuroimaging (MRI and EEG), with cognitive studies in brain-injured patients and healthy participants.
We study patients who have sustained brain injuries that result in disorders of consciousness. We also study patients with neurodegenerative diseases in order to understand more about the causes and consequences of the memory, perception and reasoning problems that many of them experience.
Finally, we develop web-based tools for the assessment of cognitive function, both in healthy participants and in patients with disorders of the brain.
Western is a leading research-focused university that provides one of the very best student experiences in Canada. Graduates of the MSc and PhD programs routinely go on to distinguished careers in a wide variety of academic, private sector, and government positions across the world. Dr. Owen accepts students from four of Western's premier graduate programs: Psychology, Neuroscience, Anatomy & Cell Biology and Physiology & Pharmacology.
