About

The Department of Forensic and Neurodevelopmental Sciences (FANS) at King's College London offers prospective students supervision from internationally recognised academics with expertise in many areas of forensic and neurodevelopmental research.

Overview

The Department of Forensic and Neurodevelopmental Sciences (FANS) at King's College London in the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) is one of the few leading teams in the world bringing together experts in brain development and antisocial behaviour. We offer prospective students supervision from internationally recognised academics with expertise in many areas of forensic and neurodevelopmental research.  As one of Europe’s largest research groups focusing on the neuroscientific understanding of the development of prosocial and antisocial behaviours across the lifespan, we believe it is essential to investigate the determinants of normal development to understand abnormal behaviour (or illness).
