Welcome to LIINC

Columbia University’s Laboratory for Intelligent Imaging and Neural Computing (LIINC) was founded in September 2000 by Prof. Paul Sajda. The mission of LIINC is to use principles of reverse “neuro”-engineering to characterize the cortical networks underlying perceptual and cognitive processes, such as rapid decision making, in the human brain. Our laboratory pursues both basic and applied neurosciences research projects.


LIINC is located on the 10th floor of Northwest Corner Building at Columbia University. If you have any additional inquiries, or if you would be interested in collaborating with our laboratory, please feel free to contact us.
