Neuroscience at UCL
24 August 2007
The current issue of ‘Science’ contains two articles about neuroscience research at UCL. Dr Henrik Ehrsson’s paper on out-of-body experience and Dr Dean Mobbs’s findings about the brain’s changing responses to approaching predators are just two of a clutch of recent achievements from across UCL’s several institutions and centres of clinical and research expertise.
Recent UCL research highlights offer answers to some intriguing questions:
- How the brain suppresses subconscious actions
- Why feeling fat or thin is all in the mind (also by Henrik Ehrsonn)
- How to track stream of consciousness
- How to knock out parts of the brain through TMS
- How to fool the brain into feeling a fake limb
- How empathy is affected by being in love
- How to read minds
