We increase understanding of the causes of cerebrovascular disease and improve the prevention of stroke and vascular dementia in routine clinical practice.
Division of Clinical Neurology
© Nicholas Irving
We study the mechanisms underlying brain diseases such as Parkinson's and Motor Neuron Disease in order to treat these conditions effectively.
Brain Network Dynamics
We investigate the moment-to-moment interactions between nerve cells that are critical for brain functions, with a focus on movement and memory.
Division of Anaesthetics
We maintain and develop research programmes in pain and consciousness, respiration and hypoxia, intensive care, simulation and human factors training.
laboratory of ophthalmology
We pursue scientific and clinical research into a range of areas related to vision, the eye and circadian neuroscience.
We bridge the gap between laboratory neuroscience and human health, by carrying out multi-scale studies from animal models through to human populations.
