Behavioural Neuroscience

Researchers in this group are broadly interested in the neural bases of behaviour, including the link between genes, hormones and neural functioning. The types of behaviour pattern studied include simple locomotor movements, action responses, reward, memory, social behaviour and social cognition. The research has implications for numerous human disorders, including dyslexia, schizophrenia, addiction, and AD/HD.
