Neurological and mental health

The most sensitive instrument of the human body is the brain and the disorders that affect it, such as stroke, epilepsy, mood disorders, dementia, and sleep apnea, are key areas of research by the Neurological and Mental Health Division.

We aim to reduce the worldwide burden of neurological and mental health disorders by evaluating current knowledge, conducting major research studies and developing new strategies to influence how medicine is practised in this field. The division addresses stroke on many fronts, particularly where it is felt that research has traditionally been lacking.

The team has also recently been focused on building stroke research evidence and expertise in China.
