  • Faculty of Medical Sciences

Liam Browne joined the UCL Wolfson Institute to establish a lab in 2016, previously being based at Harvard Medical School with Prof. Clifford Woolf and the University of Manchester with Prof. Alan North FRS. His goal is to understand how the brain integrates and modulates information associated with pain and touch to optimise behaviour. His lab investigates brain mechanisms at a systems level using behavioural approaches, optogenetics, two-photon microscopy, machine vision and machine learning. Liam was awarded a Marie Curie Fellowship from the European Commission, and a Sir Henry Dale Fellowship from the Wellcome Trust and the Royal Society.

Research Themes
Research Summary

Our goal is to understand how the brain uses touch and pain to make sense of the world around us. My lab is investigating how the brain encodes, integrates and modulates information to generate appropriate behaviours and pain. We take a multidisciplinary approach using behavioural approaches, optogenetics, machine vision, machine learning, two-photon calcium imaging, electrophysiology, and viral and transgenic methods. The key themes of our work are touch, pain, emotion, and quantitative analysis of behaviour.
