At the moment, no single neuroscientific method provides sufficient information to give complete answers with regards to the brain-behaviour relationship in humans. In order to make significant advancements, researchers require access to diverse methods that provide glimpses onto brain function at different spatio-temporal scales.

Researchers at the CCNS have on-site access to all state-of-the-art research facilities that can be expected from ambitious cognitive neuroscience institutions (see also the Core facility (CF) Cognitive Neuroscience entry in the Research Infra­structures in Austria database). Facilities are located at the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg and at the University Hospital Salzburg. These include:
