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.

Research in the Centre can be grouped broadly according to the following technology themes:

  • 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
  • Modulation of peripheral disease-controlling neural circuits
  • Brain repair & neuroregeneration
  • Brain circuits in health & disease
  • Rehabilitation & augmentation
  • Lifelong health & well-being

In addition, work within the Centre and CDT addresses 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.
