Introduction to the Department
We have six divisions in the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, some of which have a long history spanning 75 years. All have made important discoveries about how the brain works and developed treatments that directly benefit patients.
Major breakthroughs include the discovery of a type of cell in the eye which helps regulate our body clock, new techniques to image the human brain, devices to make anaesthesia safer, how to treat and prevent major stroke, novel treatments for chronic neurological conditions and eye disorders, and using our improved understanding of how people experience acute and chronic pain to identify new ways of managing it.
