About Us

The Centre for Systems Neuroscience bringing together expertise in the hard and life sciences within the College of Science and Engineering at the University of Leicester, across other colleges at the University, and through a network of first-class external collaborations.

9 Salisbury RoadBased at 9 Salisbury Road, the Centre for Systems Neuroscience was founded in January 2012 under the direction of Professor Rodrigo Quian Quiroga.

The Centre's main focus of research is the study of how neurons and their network activity give rise to complex brain processes -like those involved in visual perception and memory - and their potential for clinical application.






Current research builds upon the very successful interdisciplinary program that led to the discovery of Concept Cells - or Jennifer Aniston neurons, in the human brain a few years ago in 200? In particular, our interest are focused on the neural underpinnings of how sensory information leads to conscious perception and the formation of memories that can be stored and later recalled.
