Working together to improve lives

Our unique model of neuroscience fosters collaboration across the entire University of Auckland. Scientists, doctors and students work at every level; from the laboratory to the clinic to whānau and the community, enabling us to provide novel insights on how the brain stimulates, controls and interacts with the rest of the body. As we unlock the secrets of the brain we have the potential to change the lives of people living with neurological disease.
