Prof. Kate Jeffery

University College London (UCL)

Kate founded the Institute of Behavioural Neuroscience at UCL, a laboratory comprising several researchers who use physiological methods to study cognition. She studies how spatially sensitive neurons encode complex spaces, with a particular focus on two main issues: three-dimensional space, and the internal “sense of direction”.

Prof Jeffery will be speaking about how neuroscience can bring insights for practical application in architecture and urban design.
