Research

The Research Institute's research is principally undertaken through the following themes:

Neurodevelopment

Many of the commonest neuropsychiatric disorders have their origins in early brain development

Neuroplasticity

One of the most remarkable features of the brain is its plasticity and adaptability

Neuroexcitation

Alterations in the balance of excitation and inhibition in brain circuits are central to the development of epilepsy.

Neurodegeneration

In an ageing population, disorders of neurodegeneration are becoming increasingly prevalent and represent a major burden on individuals and society.
