A global neuroscience collaboration


Understanding how the brain works is one of science’s greatest challenges.


The key obstacle when attacking this challenge is that we do not understand how neural systems work together to support adaptive behavior. Adaptive behavior requires processing sensory information with focused attention, reaching decisions, acting, and learning from the results of those actions. These require the brain to combine a vast array of information from prior experience, current sensory stimuli, and internal and environmental contexts. These computations involve dynamic interactions between millions of neurons within local circuits and across many brain regions. Understanding these processes is a problem with a scale and complexity that far exceed what can be tackled by any single laboratory and that demands computational theory to be interwoven with experimental design and analysis in a manner not yet achieved. To overcome these challenges, we have created a virtual laboratory, unifying a group of 21 highly experienced neuroscience groups distributed across the world.

Equality & Diversity


Equality & Diversity


 Equality & Diversity

The International Brain Laboratory prides itself for creating an all-inclusive environment. Teamwork is highly valued, individual strengths are recognised and celebrated, and there is a commitment to advancing the careers of everyone, regardless of gender or role. We aim to provide a family friendly environment where both women and men feel able to take the time they need for family. We endorse the Athena SWAN Charter, which recognises commitment to advancing women's careers in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM) employment in academia.

Diversity in the Workplace

Our collaboration recognises that in our society, individuals and groups are discriminated against both directly and indirectly on the grounds of: age, colour, disability, ethnic origin, gender, HIV status, marital, social or economic status, nationality, race, religious beliefs, responsibility for dependents, sexual orientation, trades union membership or unrelated criminal convictions.

To counteract discrimination, our collaboration is committed to actively opposing all forms of discrimination, raising awareness and tackling the causes and consequences of discrimination. It is committed to providing a learning and working environment in which the rights and dignity of all its members are respected and which is free from discrimination, prejudice, intimidation and all forms of harassment including bullying; to making staff and students feel valued, motivated and enabled to do their best work and to creating a safe, welcoming working environment accessible to all.
