Gatsby’s pioneering investments in neuroscience began in the 1990s with the establishment of the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit at University College London (UCL).

In 2007 the Trustees decided to expand the investment in this exciting field, and embarked on an ambitious program of funding experimental research projects in the area of neural circuits and behaviour via consortia around the world and building a major new research institute at the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour at UCL. The Centre was formally opened in 2016, and hosts a diverse group of scientists from different disciplines including computation, physics and chemistry, all working to progress our understanding of how behaviour is generated from the complex patterns and properties of neurons.
