Sainsbury Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour


Street Displays

The Sainsbury Wellcome Centre aims to engage the public with the world of neuroscience research – art installations at street level highlight visual illusions and how our brain processes signals, and a landscaped pocket park, open to the general public, will include projections of stunning neuroscience images. Watch a time-lapse of the SWC on a summer evening.

Find out about the Centre's colonnade artwork.

It also has exhibition spaces at street-level which seek to engage passers-by in the Centre’s work through a series of illusions that demonstrate interesting aspects of vision, perception and the brain.
