About

The students in this Cognitive Neuroscience programme from Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience (ICN) at University College London (UCL) are based in a truly interdisciplinary institute.

Overview

The ICN is situated within the School of Life and Medical Sciences with staff members belonging to different research divisions and departments. This diversity provides a unique learning and research environment which is also much valued by employers.

Researchers in this Cognitive Neuroscience programme at the University College London (UCL)  examine how the human brain accomplishes perception, memory, cognition, language, consciousness and action. A leading principle is the tight integration of behavioural methods with various cutting-edge approaches to record and manipulate ongoing brain activity. 

Our research has strong translational implications for the treatment of various neurological and psychiatric disorders, as well as the education, across the lifespan.

Careers

The majority of graduating PhD students have gone on to postdoctoral positions in leading universities such as UCL, Cambridge and Oxford in the UK, and UCLA and the University of California, Berkeley in the USA.
