Description

Cardiff University has a diverse interdisciplinary group of over 100 neuroscientists and researchers working in a variety of areas of neuroscience and mental health research. In particular it has considerable expertise in stem cell research, brain imaging, brain development, learning and memory, vision sciences, neurodegeneration and neuropsychiatric research. The recently established Neuroscience and Mental Health Research Institute (NMH RI) facilitates the interdisciplinary activity of these researchers and acts as the local group representative for the British Neuroscience Association (BNA) in Cardiff.

Research currently takes place  across two main sites, Cathays Campus (involving the Schools of Psychology, Biosciences, and Vision Sciences) and Heath Campus (involving the School of Medicine and the MRC Centre for Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Genomics).  However, from July 2013, researchers from the Heath Campus will be moving to a brand new state-of-the-art £30M building on the Cathays Campus, dedicated to interdisciplinary research - the Hadyn Ellis Building (named in honour of eminent psychologist Professor Hadyn Ellis CBE DSc).
