Our research is strategically organised around a number of research centres, including our (often philanthropically-funded) interdisciplinary centres that bring together researchers, patients and social scientists:
Neuroscience research in Edinburgh takes place within a vibrant, integrated, and interdisciplinary research environment that encourages interaction between researchers working at all levels, from molecules, through synapses and networks, to cognit
As we mature into adults, the brain has established and refined billions of connections.
Within a month of life commencing, we start forming the early structures that make up the human brain. Millions of cells (neurones and glia) are generated and all have to migrate to the correct location and make connections with other cells.
Throughout our lives our bodies are constantly changing. Some of these changes occur during specific times (such as childhood) while others occur thoughout life (e.g.
