How can computational methods create new diagnostics and treatment?

Can we use these methods help us to improve health across the lifespan?

Neuroscience at the University of Warwick focusses on a number of key areas.

These include the brain’s response to acute injury, the influence of experience on neuronal structure, function and cognition, and the homeostatic regulation of cardiovascular activity, respiration and appetitive behaviour.

These areas span both human health and disease, and encompass both early development and later life. Using electrophysiological and optical techniques, as well as amperometric biosensors and computational methods developed at Warwick, Warwick Neuroscience addresses the cellular and molecular underpinnings of complex neurobiological processes with a view to both appreciate the fundamentals of nervous system function, and to deliver novel diagnostics and therapeutics.
