Behavioural Neuroscience

Lab rat experiment

The Behavioural Neuroscience group investigates psychological and neural mechanisms underlying behaviour and psychiatric and neurological disease. Research includes cross-species studies of learning and attention in rodents and humans. Insights are applied to disorders including schizophrenia and drug addiction, and the group maintains close links with colleagues in Biomedical Sciences, Biosciences and Psychiatry. Recently funded projects examine associative learning mechanisms and neural substrates (BBSRC, Wellcome Trust) and contribution of hippocampal dysfunction to schizophrenia symptoms (Royal Society), and prefrontal mechanisms underlying cognitive deficits (Leverhulme Trust Fellowship).
