Research Mission

The research mission of the Neuroscience & Behaviour Theme is to explore the relationship between brain function and behaviour. Genetic and molecular signalling within neurons and glia build functional networks and regulate the neuronal activity which underlie behaviour and psychology. Adaption during development and ageing provide further insights into the physiological and psychological limitations of performance, informing studies of brain injury and neurodegeneration and novel approaches to therapy.
