The Human Mind Project highlights the contribution of the arts and humanities to the study of human nature and the importance of a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach to understanding the mind that integrates science and the humanities.

The project was launched in December 2013 in London after the establishment of an Advisory Group composed of leading national and international experts from a broad range of disciplines across the arts and humanities as well as the cognitive and social sciences. 

The group discusses and documents the present landscape of research on the mind, making a coordinated effort to define the major intellectual challenges in understanding the nature and significance of the human mind.

As one of the Central Academic Initiatives of the School of Advanced Study at the University of London, The Human Mind Project is led by neuroscientist Colin Blakemore and is housed in Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU.
