About Us

The Faculty of Brain Sciences brings together expertise at the forefront of neurology, ophthalmology, audiology, psychology and language sciences, cognitive neuroscience and mental health sciences. It is one of four faculties within UCL's School of Life and Medical Sciences

Our community undertakes world-leading research and teaching in neurology and neural pathways, neuroscience, language, cognition, psychology and psychiatry.  It takes an integrative approach to the study of mind and brain by focusing on the determinants of human perception, cognition, emotion and behaviour. 

We are recognised as world leaders in our fields and our work attracts staff and students from around the globe. UCL neuroscience has the highest level of ISI citations in Europe, and is ranked second worldwide (behind Harvard), in the field of neuroscience and behavior. The Faculty and its component parts create an outstanding and vibrant environment for study and research.
