Labs, clinics and treatments

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


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 clinics.

Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience


Cognitive 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.

Top

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 move, see and hear, the teams are translating this knowledge into improved therapies.
