Research Themes

Research within the Centre for Synaptic Plasticity is principally focused on four areas; the development of new pharmacological and genetic tools, the mechanisms of receptor trafficking, cellular mechanisms of plasticity and the networks that are involved in memory systems. Many of the groups working under the banner of the MRC Centre for Synaptic Plasticity carry out research on more than one of these areas and all are involved in collaborations across multiple areas of research.
