Overview of Neuroscience

The Department of Neuroscience is a basic research facility and does not perform clinical research. However, many projects pursued in the Department are likely to have a significant impact on understanding neurological and psychiatric diseases.

It has become clear in recent years that the biggest progress in understanding disease is derived from insight into the normal functions of an organ, and that basic research into the fundamental properties of a biological system and its changes in disease is the best approach to come up with new diagnostic and therapeutic ideas.
