Cutting edge research on the brain and neurons

The research performed at the department of Neuroscience covers the normal function of the nervous system, its development as well as how function of the nervous system is altered following injury and in disease, and how to improve treatment of patients with these disorders. In addition, studies are carried out on genetic and acquired factors that can give rise to or contribute to nervous system disorders and underlie personality disorders (e.g. drug abuse, criminality).

Research can be described with four research profiles:
Genes and Environment
Brain Disorders and Trauma
Cognition and Behaviour
Sensorimotor Ciruits and Plasticity
