Brain Health and Disease
Theme leader: Associate Professor Kaylene Young
Using cutting-edge tools, our neuroscientists aim to understand the mechanisms underlying the brain's response to trauma (e.g. road accidents and falls) and diseases such as dementia including Alzheimer's disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and motor neuron disease. This research will assist in the development of new ways to diagnose, prevent or treat these devastating disorders that affect hundreds of thousands of Australians each year.
