Brain circuits

In this programme we exploit the latest in molecular, optogenetic, electophysiological and live-imagine tools to study circuit formation and brain plasticity.

Brain Imaging in Babies

The Brain Imaging in Babies study (BIBS) aims to improve understanding of how a baby's brain develops from before birth up until 3-4 years of age. Working with children from a variety of backgrounds and communities, we use a combination of state of the art diagnostic tools such as MRI scans alongside traditional behavioral assessments to capture the earliest information on infant brain development.

Building brains

We investigate the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in the formation of the nervous system. Our research focuses on brain regionalisation, tissue and cell morphogenesis, neurogenesis, neuronal fate specification and migration.
