Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging
  • The Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging (WTCN) at UCL is an interdisciplinary centre for neuroimaging excellence. The Centre's research groups study all aspects of higher cognitive function including vision, memory, language and reasoning, emotion, decision making and motor control. Home to SPM, a standard tool for analysing neuroimaging data, the Centre seeks to answer fundamental questions about how the brain works in order to improve human and animal health. The goal is to understand how thought and perception arise from brain activity, and how such processes break down in neurological and psychiatric disease. The Centre hosts and trains over 100 clinicians, scientists and support staff, including some of the world's most cited neuroscientists.
