The Institute studies brain processes and artificial learning systems, theoretically and empirically, drawing on the disciplines of neuroscience, cognitive science, computer science, computational science, mathematics and statistics.

ANC was formed in 1998 when the School of Informatics was created out of five previous departments and centres.  ANC evolved from Prof. David Willshaw's research group, the Centre for Neural Systems, originally part of the Centre for Cognitive Science.

ANC fosters the study of adaptive processes in both artificial and biological systems. It encourages interdisciplinary and collaborative work involving the traditional disciplines of neuroscience, cognitive science, computer science, computational science, mathematics and statistics.
