Course content

Help advance understanding of the nervous system by training in cutting-edge neuroscience techniques

Our research seeks to understand how the nervous system, the most complex and highly organised part of the body, is able to generate perception, thoughts and behaviour. We then apply this understanding to seek solutions to real-world problems, like promoting healthy ageing, stroke recovery, spinal cord injury repair.
