Neural Circuits and Neuroimaging

The Institute and University have made significant investment in state of the art facilities for neuroimaging, including 3T, 4.7T and 7T MR scanners, both human and animal PET scanners, and high density EEG.

At the cellular level we employ optical recording of voltage and intracellular ions (calcium), and study neural circuitry through applying anatomical and electrophysiological methods to both animal and human tissues.

Research in neuroinformatics and computational neuroscience is enabling us to deal with the analysis and storage of the high volumes of data generated from these varied approaches, and the use of modelling enables us to make important predictions about network activity. All this is helping us understand the organisation of neural networks and the mechanisms underlying important properties like oscillatory activity.

This research theme can be sub-divided into sub-themes which provide the focus for more specific research expertise:
