How do nervous systems sense the world and generate behaviours? How do circuits of neurons process information? And how can we treat diseases that interfere with these processes? Answering these questions is a challenge that involves disciplines from molecular biology to engineering and psychiatry to computer science.

At the University of Sussex, there are over 50 research groups working on these questions, and this community is represented by Sussex Neuroscience. Our aim is to further world-class research that will help us understand the nervous system in both health and disease.
