The Centre for Educational Neuroscience combines the strengths of three institutions: University College London, Birkbeck, and the UCL Institute of Education to provide the foundation for a national Centre for Educational Neuroscience.

Together their objective is to develop this emerging discipline, using their combined strength in neuroscience, child development, psychology, and education research and its applications to education practise to establish a dialogue between researchers and educationalists to further translations of research into practise to improve education and well-being across the lifespan.
