Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit
The Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit is a research centre at UCL supported by the Gatsby Charitable Foundation. Our work encompasses theoretical and computational neuroscience, computational statistics, machine learning and AI, threads drawn together by our focus on the mathematical foundations of adaptive intelligent behaviour.
We maintain a singular and cohesive research culture, emphasising interaction and collaboration within the unit and beyond. We work closely with colleagues at the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour (SWC) and the wider UCL Neuroscience Domain, the Centre for Computational Statistics and Machine Learning (CSML), as well as companies and research institutions around the world. In 2020 we joined UCL's ELLIS Unit, part of the European Laboratory for Learning and Intelligent Systems.
About two-thirds of our PhD and postdoctoral alumni have established successful academic careers, while others continue research in companies such as DeepMind, itself founded by two of our alumni.
