Brain and Mind Research programme will be established to promote collaborative theoretical, experimental, and clinical study of the brain from the molecular to the behavioral and cognitive levels.
To promote collaborative theoretical, experimental, and clinical study of the brain from the molecular to the behavioural and cognitive levels. Extensive research will also be performed on cellular, molecular, and clinical aspects of damage and reparation of neural tissue. Interdisciplinary research will be completed in the fields of functional neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neuroimaging, neuropsychology, neurology, psychiatry, and computational neuroscience. Advanced biomedical imaging methods currently start to cross the formerly unreachable boundary of microscopic and molecular level. Their applications can substantially contribute to better understanding of physiological and pathological changes in the nervous system, multi-level study of animal and human behaviour, and translational research with a strong impact on the management of neuropsychiatric diseases The programme is committed to providing excellence in research and education in brain and mind research.
- Modification of diseases related to CNS disturbances such as neurodegenerative diseases, impulse control disorders, addiction, schizophrenia, depression, epilepsy, pain etc.
- Neurosocial research will enhance the knowledge of neuropsychosocial human functioning with potential applications in social policies, and educational/ rehabilitational /medical programmes and approaches
- Development of advanced methods of recording and analysing multimodal brain imaging
