Our nervous system runs through all parts of our body and is the basis for being. We want to understand its fundamental mechanisms and how dysfunctions lead to diseases.
What We Do
We use advanced technologies that allow us to unravel how changes to molecules impact on nerve cell functions and affects behavior and disease progression. Examples are pain, visual disturbances, depression, Parkinson’s disease and dementia – noting that inflammatory states and stressful environmental conditions have emerged as able to modulate brain functions.
