Videos about neuroscience research at the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre

How does the brain allow us to think, feel, see, smell, hear, laugh and love? By bringing together world-leading experimental and computational neuroscientists, the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre's mission is to explain how activity in brain circuits gives rise to thoughts, sensations, memories and actions.


This video describes what neural circuits are, some of the techniques we use at the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre to try to understand them, and our collaboration with the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit.
