Movement, Function and Behaviour
This group focuses on a bidirectional Body and Mind approach to investigating and understanding the relationship between physiological function and human behaviour. Research themes are organised around the global public health issues of long term conditions, multimorbidity and frailty. The group’s position within the Centre for Human and Applied Physiological Sciences is unique, bringing together investigators with multidisciplinary integrative and translational research expertise in clinical neuroscience, allergy and respiratory care, ageing and falls, cognition and addiction and lifestyles.
Our mission is to decrease the years lost from the synergistic interactions between abnormal body and mind physiology.
Our goal is to facilitate interdisciplinary collaborations in Body and Mind research and develop and apply innovative research methods to
- Identify physiological mechanisms and processes underlying function, behaviour and emotional response
- Identify effective, evidence based assessment methods that might predict outcome and management strategies to optimise clinical care
- Contribute to and influence policy guidance relating to the big public health issues of long term conditions, multimorbidity and frailty.
