The University of Melbourne has an outstanding international profile in many facets of the Neurosciences and has a cohort of eminent neuroscientists in this field of endeavor. The Melbourne Neuroscience Institute supports these and other Neuroscience related research across the University of Melbourne.
MNI Research Themes
The Melbourne Neuroscience Institute provides support to research that both enhances the current objectives of extant endeavors and which takes advantage of new, emergent and strategic opportunities. These research themes have been identified because they are already acknowledged major strengths of University-based neuroscience research and of key affiliates. They are areas that we seek to enhance through collaborative interaction given that the University, as a whole, has great breadth in research capacity across its Faculties in these thematic areas, and naming them will improve the clarity of the University’s strategic positioning around them.
Neuroscience research takes place in some unlikely places! From neural decision-making in finance to the benefits of positive psychology, the University of Melbourne is a leader in all facets of Neuroscience research.
