Research focus area

Brain function and dysfunction over the lifespan

This research profile area brings together the cognitive and the biomedical neurosciences in a unique multidisciplinary setting, studying brain function and dysfunction in the developing brain, the adult brain and the ageing brain. The underlying belief is that anyone wanting to know why something in the brain goes wrong first has to know what normal brains look like and how they function.

We study subjects ranging from language processing to cognitive robotics, and from migraine to psychiatric disorders and neuro-pharmacology.
