Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience


Public engagement

Mind the Brain is a conference organised by the ICN and aims to share current and upcoming research in the field of cognitive neuroscience with the public.


The first Mind the Brain conference was held in June 2016 celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience. The conference featured talks from researchers at the forefront of the cognitive neuroscience field and highlighted the public interest in anticipating where future research may take us and how it will impact our lives. Mind the Brain was a huge success and so we have decided make it a recurring event.

Mind the Brain 2021 was the first edition of the biennial conference organised by the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at UCL for all those interested in mind and brain.

As the previous years conference was cancelled we decided to restart and reinvent this stimulating day online.
