Research Centre for Brain and Behaviour
Promoting and strengthening research activity in brain and behavioural sciences
Fostering and advancing interdisciplinary research and scholarship at the intersection of psychology, neuroscience and related fields.
Brain and Behaviour incorporates mechanisms of perception, attention, emotion, learning and memory, sensory and motor processes, and includes animal models of neurobehavioral research. We are a group of neuroscientists, physiologists and psychologists working together to better understand human behaviour. We investigate cognitive and brain mechanisms in psychologically and neurologically intact animals and humans, and the disruption of these processes caused by drugs, brain damage, ageing or atypical development.
