Research themes at the BHRC

Translating neuroscience discoveries into real treatments for those suffering from neurological disorders is a top priority for the BHRC. Researchers and clinicians at the Brain Health Research Centre are involved with all stages of brain research, from puzzling out the basic mechanisms of how the brain works, to finding treatments that harness the brain's restorative potential and then testing innovative therapies.

Using a broad range of expertise, our researchers and clinicians are working toward a better understanding of neurological disorders.
