Welcome to the Stanford Cognitive & Systems Neuroscience Laboratory

Learn about our Research

The Stanford Cognitive and Systems Neuroscience Laboratory (SCSNL), directed by Prof. Vinod Menon, aims to advance fundamental knowledge of human brain function and to use this knowledge to help children and adults with psychiatric and neurological disorders. Our research integrates multimodal brain imaging techniques with novel computational techniques and cognitive-behavioral-clinical assays to determine mechanisms underlying cognitive, emotional, and social function and dysfunction.

Make a Gift

Our work is advancing understanding of human brain function and dysfunction across the lifespan, in individuals with psychiatric and neurological conditions  including Autism,  ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Schizophrenia, Mood Disorders, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease.
