Human Brain Health
Through our pioneering research in state-of-the-art imaging facilities, we are helping to understand what keeps the human brain healthy, and how this knowledge can be used to maintain brain function in ageing and disease. We are tackling the problems of mental ill health; from psychosis and schizophrenia to drug addiction, depression and sleep disorders.
