Description

The Strathclyde Neuroscience group focuses on understanding fundamental neurobiological mechanisms in health and disease and the identification of new treatments.

Emphasis is placed upon schizophrenia, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, cognitive and hearing disorders. Research activities span multiple levels – from genetics, molecules, cells, circuits and neural systems through to pharmacology, behaviour and cognition and incorporate a wide array of techniques from genomics, transcriptomics, and metabolomics to brain imaging, biophotonics, electrophysiology, stem cell manipulation, behaviour, and the development of a range of in vivo models including transgenic mice. Several projects are integrated with human research in terms of drug discovery, diagnostics and genetic vulnerability.
