UCL Neuroscience

UCL is Europe’s research powerhouse in neuroscience. We are ranked second in the world, and first in Europe, in neuroscience and behaviour by Thomson ISI Essential Science Indicators, with more than twice as many publications and citations as any other European institution. 

UCL Neuroscience researchers generate over 30% of the country’s contribution to the most highly cited publications in neuroscience, more than twice as much as any other university.

In neuroimaging and clinical neurology, UCL produces 65% and 44% of the UK's contribution to the world's most highly cited papers, five-fold larger than that of the next highest UK institution. The UCL Neuroscience Domain brings together over 450 principal investigators who conduct this world-leading work in seven themes that reflect the strength of neuroscience at UCL.
