Why is it important?

Understanding how human brain Understanding the human brain is one of the greatest challenges facing 21st century science. If we can rise to the challenge, we can gain profound insights into what makes us human, develop new treatments for brain disease and build revolutionary new computing technologies. Today, for the first time, modern ICT has brought these goals within sight.function is one of the greatest challenges facing 21st century science. The research will enable us to gain profound insights into what makes us human, develop new solutions for patients and aging population, and build revolutionary artificial intelligence technologies. 

 

How are we different?

The group has strong collaborative links with internal and external researchers including in the Schools of Life Science, Computer Science and the Lincoln Institute of Health. Staff have successfully attracted external funding from the British Academy, EPSRC, ESRC, Nuffield Foundation, Royal Society, Home Office and Innovate UK.
