Cells & behaviour

The Cells and Behaviour Unit investigates the neurobiological mechanisms governing mood and cognition in health & disease using fundamental and translational research.

Our Mission is to uncover fundamental mechanisms of mood and cognitive processes, as well as to reveal the biological basis of psychiatric disorders to identify and validate new intervention targets.
