A multidisciplinary approach is core to the work of the Centre.  Our researchers span 15 departments over the three faculties at Imperial College and bring technological approaches together with neuroscience expertise to investigate brain function and solve problem underlying brain disorders.


Our research can be grouped broadly within technology themes of:

  • Microelectronics, devices & biosensors
  • Optical & genetic neurotechnology
  • Computational modeling and data analysis tools
  • Neuroprosthetics & neural interface technology
  • Robotics & human-machine interaction
  • Imaging

These are applied to health themes including:

  • Diagnostics & clinical monitoring
  • Neuromodulation for disease treatment
  • Brain repair & neuroregeneration
  • Brain circuits in health & disease
  • Rehabilitation & augmentation
  • Lifelong health & well-being

Centre research covers a range of disorders including: age associated disease, ALS, Alzheimer's, cancer, cerebral palsy, CNS, dementia, hearing impairment, multiple sclerosis, neurotrauma, Parkinson's, psychiatric disorders and stroke.
