Research areas: Behavioural Neuroscience, Perceptual and Cognitive Systems, Brain Computations, Neuropsychiatry and disease models

Research in this group focuses on understanding the mechanisms that underlie behaviour, perception and cognition in human and animal models. We bring together interdisciplinary methodologies that range from behavioural testing, state-of-the-art imaging, genomic and neurobiological measures to computational approaches.
