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”.


Cognitive neuroscience and architecture

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