Neuroscience

From the laboratory through to clinical studies, our groundbreaking neuroscience research explores the function of the nervous system in both health and disease.

Our work aims to make a real difference in the understanding and treatment of neurological conditions including dementia, stroke, multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease and chronic pain. We use molecular, physiological and neuroimaging techniques to examine the underlying mechanisms, diagnosis and treatments of these conditions.
