researcher at microscopeWe make full use of different techniques and approaches in our quest to understand the nervous system, from studying biochemical pathways to developing neurosurgical techniques, and from electrophysiology to animal behaviour – and everything in between.

BN enables members to collaborate and bring together complementary techniques. Topics as varied as synaptic plasticity, addiction, visual perception and pain are all studied in BN.

Combining our interdisciplinary strengths allows us to advance research and ensure BN can have the greatest impact on scientific, clinical, and real life questions in neuroscience today.
