Neuroscience and mental health
Our work spans the whole breadth of research in the neurosciences, psychology and psychiatry at the University.
From studying brain function at the molecular, cellular and systems level, through to applied clinical research, the domain supports and develops the very best research to gain a greater understanding of the nervous system in health and disease.
Research in the domain addresses fundamental questions in neuroscience and psychology. This is to improve the treatment, management and care of the large number of individuals with neurodevelopmental and neurological disease or mental illness.
The overall purpose of the domain is to ensure Manchester develops as a leading centre of neuroscience and mental health research, both nationally and internationally.
Areas of activity
