Cellular Basis of Behaviour and Disease

Research in this group focuses on the function of neurons and glia with the aim of understanding how cellular and network properties control complex behaviours. In addition, pathological changes in cellular properties are studied in various models of neurodegenerative and neurological disorders (such as Motor Neuron Disease and Alzheimer’s Disease) in order to reveal key disease mechanisms that could serve as targets for novel therapeutic strategies.
