Psychiatric Neuroscience Centre
Psychiatric Neuroscience at the Discipline of Psychiatry is directed into a branch of animal research and human research. Both streams use a variety of technical platforms (e.g. Imaging, genetics, -omics, animal models, genetic engineering, cell technologies) in order to study the neurobiology of psychiatric disorders and the neuroscience mechanisms underlying treatments and interventions. Currently, the main research groups supporting this research centre are in the areas of basic neuroscience, behavioural animal modelling, genetic engineering of mouse models, gene-environmental studies, human genetics and –omics, neuroimmunology, neuroregeneration, neural plasticity and neural repair.
