Our research unit aims to unravel the neurobiological mechanisms supporting complex behaviours such as movement, cognition and emotion by means of both experimental models and human participants. A major focus in our unit is elucidating the cellular and circuit mechanisms that give rise to neurological disorders in order to provide early diagnosis, improve treatment options and ultimately to prevent these debilitating conditions. By combining different areas of expertise within our different research teams, we are able to study the brain at various levels, ranging from single cells to neural circuits to whole brains and behaviour using combinations of techniques including electrophysiology, neurochemistry, neuroimaging and computational modelling.

Sep 8th: ENU rewarded with FOS label

In this year's round of the YUFE Full Open Science (FOS) Label, we are proud to award this to our research group 'Experimental Neurobiology Unit' (ENU). This research group, lead by prof. Tommas Ellender, showed high exellence towards Open Science. They published exclusively in Open Access, made many of their datasets openly available and made use of Open Licenses to allow for reuse of their work. We wish this group all the best in their upcoming Open Science practices!
