Welcome to the home page of our research group. We’re a group of clinicians and scientists based at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging and UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience who are interested in the neural basis of human consciousness. We use non-invasive neuroimaging techniques in combination with behavioural and psychophysical measurements plus transcranial magnetic stimulation, often using the human visual system as a model for understanding how consciousness of the environment arises from sensory stimulation.

Geraint Rees is the group leader, and group members come from both medical and scientific backgrounds at all levels. As well as doing science, group members contribute to teaching and training other researchers and doctors at Queen Square and University College London, and providing patient care at the National Hospital for Neurology & Neurosurgery and elsewhere. We try to do cool and interesting experiments and publish them in nice journals, but successful cognitive neuroscience needs creativity and so we try to also enjoy ourselves and have a good work/life balance.
