Neurosciences and Mental Health

The Neurosciences and Mental Health stream researches the effect of the brain and muscle on children's health and well-being.

Its activities range from research into neurological diseases such as muscular dystrophy and neuromuscular disorders to developmental cognitive neuropsychology research. This involves understanding how brains work in children with varying conditions from brain tumours to sleep disorders and dyslexia and improving the interface between health and education in children with a range of neurological conditions.

Other research involves improving the understanding of the effectiveness of interventions in children and adolescents with eating disorders.
