Institute of Neuroscience (IoNS)

The aim of our Institute of Neuroscience (IoNS) is to improve our knowledge of our nervous system and neurological illnesses as well as stimulate neuroscience at UCL. By providing a fertile working environment and furthering a judicious use of existing resources, it strives to reach a wide audience, to enhance visibility and to arouse interest in questions that are sometimes so complex they might put young researchers off. IoNS brings together researchers with diverse skills and encourages them to study the nervous system in an integrated way, “from molecule to behaviour”. 

The systemic and cognitive as well as clinical approaches, of a holistic nature, require such skills as functional imaging, electrophysiology in vivo and different functional tests. The cell and molecular approach is more analytic, based on conception and the analyses of simple animal models, and on the study of cellular and tissue culture.

Chairman: Pr Jean-Noël Octave
