Why study Neuroscience at Cardiff?
We offer an exceptional research environment with world class facilities for all areas of neuroscience. The breadth and depth of our expertise ranges from the phenotypic analysis of single gene mutations to the characterization of gene-environment interplay in psychiatric and neurological, and from imaging intracellular calcium in single dendritic spines to combined EEG and fMRI during attentional tasks in humans.
Our neuroscience researchers are among the international leaders in their respective fields. Indeed, the 2008 Nobel Prize for Medicine and Physiology has been awarded to Prof. Martin Evans of the School of Bioscience for his pioneering work on stem cells. Research labs are equipped with the most up-to-date facilities to address key questions of basic and clinical Neuroscience. All neuroscientists have substantial financial support that has been won in peer-reviewed competitions. Thus, PhD students have a great opportunity to join neuroscience research that is of the highest international standard that is likely to result in publication in top neuroscience journals
