Neuroscience and mental health
From bench-side scientists investigating the basic cellular biology of the brain and the underlying mechanisms of disease, to clinical scientists applying their findings to medicine and patient care; at The University of Manchester our academics and researchers come together along the translational pipeline to advance understanding and knowledge in key areas of neuroscience and mental health.
The modern study of neuroscience and mental health requires experts from a wide range of disciplines to work together to push the limits of what is understood about the brain and the nervous system.
Our state-of-the-art facilities and academic experts with a combined interest in solving the same problem enable us to tackle some of the greatest challenges in health and medicine.
Neuroscience and mental health at Manchester is one of our broadest capabilities, covering a wide range of specialist areas. The following topics highlight a number of areas of particular research strength within neuroscience and mental health at Manchester.
From genetic expertise and social care in dementia to stroke interventions, we work to reduce the impact of neurodegenerative conditions.
We are one of the UK’s leading centres for research into psychosis treatment, management and prevention.
With the largest group of circadian biologists in Europe, we study the biological clock and its effect on health, wellbeing and productivity.
