Associated µNEURO members:
The Experimental Neurobiology Unit (ENU) is a research group of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical, Biomedical and Veterinary Sciences and joined µNEURO as an associated member.
The Experimental Neurobiology 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 the 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 the different research teams, the group is 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.
