Neuroscience degree offered at The Cardiff University, is a research area within which you can focus your studies as part of our suite of Biosciences research programmes (PhD, MPhil, MD).

Overview

The Neuroscience degree from The Cardiff Universit,  pursues a broad range of neurobiological research, spanning from the molecular to the behavioural levels.

The Division is a member of the Cardiff Neuroscience Centre (CNC), which brings together research in neuroscience, psychology and psychiatric genetics and genomics. The Neuroscience Division also hosts the experimental MRI centre (EMRIC) and Brain Repair Group.

Distinctive features

  • Member of the Neuroscience and Mental Health Research Institute (NMH RI), bringing together researchers based in the School of Biosciences, School of Medicine and School of Psychology.
  • Brain Repair Group.
  • Experimental MRI Centre (EMRIC).

Programme Structure

The spectrum of research activities include:
  • neural differentiation of human and mouse stem cells
  • gene regulation in response to physiological stimuli
  • cellular and neuronal network mechanisms of sleep
  • mood stabilizers and the cellular basis of bipolar mood disorder
  • advanced optical techniques for imaging dendritic spines and calcium dynamics
  • ghrelin and the regulation of neuroendocrine processes
  • functional differentiation of adult peripheral sensory neurons
  • intracellular signalling in learning and memory
  • mechanisms of neuronal plasticity in the cerebral cortex
  • neuro-imaging of plasticity and sensory processing
  • plasticity in the developing visual system
  • molecular, cellular and neural processes of long-term and emotional memory
  • cellular, genetic and neuronal network mechanisms of epilepsy
  • ageing in the autonomic nervous system
  • cell based therapies for Huntington’s and Parkinson’s disease
