The Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit was created at University College London (UCL) in July 1998. It is funded for an initial period of 10 years by the Gatsby Charitable Foundation. The Unit consists of four faculty members, seven post-doctoral researchers, twelve research students and three support staff.

The research objectives of the Gatsby Unit are to study neural computational theories of perception and action with an emphasis on learning. The research activity of the Unit is overseen by a Scientific Advisory Board.

Their visitor programme enables members of the Unit to work with leading researchers from across the world on a range of short and long term research collaborations. They also host a seminar programme with talks by Unit members, other UCL staff and guest speakers.
