THE STATE KEY LABORATORY OF BRAIN AND COGNITIVE SCIENCES
The SKL of Brain and Cognitive Sciences provides a national platform for investigating the neural underpinnings of brain processes and functions. Riding on the research excellence of HKU in genomic research, molecular neuroscience, and cognitive-affective neuroscience, empirical data derived from multi-modality and multi-disciplinary investigations are applied to translational research to develop protocols for promotion of brain health and mental well-being.
Partnered with The State Key Laboratory of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, our State Key Laboratory of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at the University of Hong Kong was approved by the Ministry of Science and Technology of China in the summer of 2005.
Our State Key Laboratory of Brain and Cognitive Sciences is hosted by the Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Social Sciences.
