Experimental Neurobiology Unit (ENU)
Main organisation:Department of Biomedical Sciences
Lifecycle:1 Oct 2021 → Today
Organisation profile:Our research unit aims to unravel the neurobiological mechanisms supporting complex behaviours such as movement, cognition and emotion by means of both experimental models and human participants. A major focus in our unit is elucidating the cellular and circuit mechanisms that give rise to neurological disorders in order to provide early diagnosis, improve treatment options and ultimately to prevent these debilitating conditions. By combining different areas of expertise within our different research teams, we are able to study the brain at various levels, ranging from single cells to neural circuits to whole brains and behaviour using combinations of techniques including electrophysiology, neurochemistry, neuroimaging and computational modelling.
