From molecules to behaviour

We investigate the inner workings of neurons, glia and other cell-types: from the molecules that make up protein complexes at the synapse, through state-of-the-art microscopy of cells in a dish, to the electrophysiology of nerve conduction, and behaviour in the whole animal.

Some of our disease modelling work uses human stem cells:
