The following School research groups operate within the theme of Neuroscience:


Understanding how the brain works is one of the great challenges of the 21st century. By integrating work across the spectrum of neuroscience, we aim to advance our understanding of brain development and function and to identify new therapeutic targets for neurological and psychiatric disorders. We use collaborative multidisciplinary approaches for the investigation of dynamic changes in complex molecular assemblies, signalling processes, cellular interactions and functions of the nervous system.

The Neuroscience research theme within the School of Physiology and Pharmacology broadly sub-divides into programs that investigate:

Multiple cross-overs between these areas of expertise and extensive collaboration between different research groups underpins both the research and informs our teaching.
