UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology



The Brain, Art & Innovation

The LWENC is a new partner for the Movement for Hope event called Rewired. The event partners with several departments at UCL to present an inspiring evening featuring connections between neuroscience, art and health.

An evening at the intersection of art and science

The LWENC will be involved in the organisation and speakers arrangement for the event, with the aim of providing our CRF's patients and public with the opportunity to hear about our research in a creative and understandable way!  Researchers from the LWENC will collaborate with artists and patient-advocates to create dynamic talks that incorporated the arts.
