Welcome to neoLAB

home of infant functional brain imaging

Developing New Methods to Image the Infant Brain

We use a range of technologies to understand brain function in both healthy and sick newborn infants and relate this to their behavioural state. Our emphasis is on optical and EEG technologies, yet we continue to explore new approaches to imaging the infant brain.

The neoLAB is a formal collaborative group set up in 2012 between the Cambridge Centre for Perinatal Neuroscience and engineers and physicists from from what is now the DOT-HUB research group at University College London (UCL). neoLAB brings together key individuals from across different specialities with a common interest in the developing brain. The clinical home of neoLAB is the Evelyn Perinatal Imaging Centre at the Rosie Hospital on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus. Opened in 2013, the centre is a unique neonatal functional brain-imaging unit. Funded by the Evelyn Trust, the unit is equipped with a physics laboratory and infant scanning room, designed to develop novel optical and electrophysiological imaging technologies to study the newborn brain.

From Research to Patient Care

We apply the best research to improve clinical care for infants with brain injury
