(part of the Neurosciences and Mental Health theme)
Our mission is to promote excellence in clinical care in developmental clinical neurology through multidisciplinary clinical and basic science research and teaching.
Rapid advances in our understanding of the anatomical, physiological, biochemical and genetic bases of developmental neurology continue to have a major impact upon clinical practice. These have led to novel treatment strategies for disorders of the developing nervous system. Despite this, neurological disorders, and their effect upon subsequent neurological development, remain a major, international health problem.
The Neurosciences Unit seeks to address these issues in both research and teaching. Currently, its six programmes of research are in three complementary, multidisciplinary themes:
- origins and outcome of epilepsy and other focal brain disorders;
- genetic and biochemical bases of brain disorders;
- the local and international impact of neurological disability and its amelioration.
