King’s Neuroscience

 

Professor Mark RichardsonWelcome from Vice Dean (Neuroscience), Professor Mark Richardson

Welcome to King's Neuroscience, where we are committed to answering some of the most difficult questions in science. Uniquely placed within the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) we can work within the wider context of mental health as a whole. We have innovative research themes – from development to old age, diseases and disorders to healthy ageing. King’s Neuroscience seeks to understand how our brains work, to improve all our lives.

We work closely with three large NHS Trusts as part of King’s Health Partners to increase understanding of diseases and improve treatments for patients.
