Who is SNAC?
We span systems neuroscience, sensory ecology, psychophysics, computation and robotics.
To synergise across our highly interdisciplinary research interests, SNAC is led by representatives from diverse fields, from sensory ecology to computational neuroscience
Supported by a grand total of over £26m in research grants, SNAC comprises some of the most prolific research teams at Sussex and beyond.
What we do
We bring together leading experts in sensory neuroscience and comptation as well as students and the general public through conferences, symposia, one-site and online seminars as well as diverse outreach activities across the UK and beyond
We provide a wide range of training opportunities, from dedicated undergraduate courses centered on “The Senses” to Master’s and PhD level seminars and opportunities for lifelong learning.
What Drives Us
To truly understand function and computation in the brain remains one of the biggest challenges of our time. At SNAC, we leverage our study of “the senses” as a powerful window into the fundamental working of the mind.
