The CBR undertakes a full range of neuroscience research,
from genetic and cellular studies, to brain imaging projects, to assessments of new clinical therapies.
We divide these wide-ranging scientific projects into four themes:
Clinical Neuroscience seeks to better understand the way patients interact with
and respond to
health services. Aiming to improve healthcare for neurology, psychological and
sensory patients, the research groups work with human volunteers in out-patient
Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience
neuroscientists study the relationship between mental processes and brain
processes and structures. Using the latest computational and imaging methods, they
aim to learn more about how we think.
Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience
The Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience teams study the basic biology of the brain
and nervous system of the fish, avian, mammalian and human brain. This knowledge is then translated into better drug treatments
and therapies for people living with neurological conditions.
Sensory and Motor Neuroscience
Sensory and Motor Neuroscience brings together scientists studying how our sensory
and movement systems work. By understanding the basic biology of how all animals
and hear, the teams are translating this knowledge into improved therapies.
