UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology


Institute of Sensorimotor Neuroscience

ISMN is a cross-departmental institute within UCL bringing together researchers with a common interest in sensory processing, motor control and sensorimotor integration

The Institute of Sensorimotor Neuroscience (ISMN) has experts in a wide range of fields applicable to the study of the neural control of movement and combines clinical, physiological, neuroimaging, developmental, psychophysical and computational approaches. In addition, the research at the IMN covers different motor systems, such as the eye, upper and lower limb, and balance. This broad approach allows an identification of the common themes of human neural function for motor control.

ISMN includes the following institutes and centres across UCL.

The following Groups from the core research groups of ISMN:
