The Blakemore Lab

UCL Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Group


The Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Group at the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience focuses on the development of social cognition and decision-making in adolescence. We run large scale behavioural studies in schools and in the lab, as well as neuroimaging studies at UCL. We are based at the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience in Queen Square, London, UK.

Group Leader: Professor Sarah-Jayne Blakemore FRSB FBA
