The Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences (NDCN) was formed in November 2010 by bringing together the Department of Clinical Neurology, the Nuffield Laboratory of Ophthalmology, the Nuffield Department of Anaesthetics and the Oxford Centre for Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain (FMRIB).

In 2015 a fifth division was created: The Centre for the Prevention of Stroke and Dementia. In 2020 the MRC Brain Network Dynamics Unit moved into our department, forming a sixth division.
