The Neural Reckoning Group is led by Dan Goodman. It is part of the Intelligent Systems and Networks group in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Imperial College London.

The brain processes information using highly connected parallel networks of neurons communicating via precisely timed, discrete neural impulses (called "spikes"). This spike-based form of computation is specific to the brain, being radically different to conventional digital and analogue computation. The aim of our research is to uncover the principles underlying spike-based neuronal computation, both as a fundamental research problem and with an eye to applications in intelligent systems and neural prosthetics (as we know that brains massively outperform state of the art algorithms).

Specifically, we work in two main domains: neuroinformatics and sensory neuroscience.
