About Us

In 2005 October, with the approval of the Ministry of Science and Technology of China, The University of Hong Kong established the State Key Laboratory of Brain and Cognitive Sciences (SKLBCS), a strategic platform for cutting-edge research on human neuroscience. The SKLBCS focuses on understanding and unravelling the neuroplastic underpinnings of the neurocognitive and affective functions regulating and promoting the human brain and psychological health.

The SKLBCS adopts an interdisciplinary and multilayer research approach to integrate animal and human research findings to understand the neural underpinnings of human cognition and emotion, and, furthermore, the influence of the biopsychosocial environments on these neurocognitive and affective processes regulating the brain and psychological health.
