Integrative Neurophysiology

Unit(s) of assessment: Allied Health Professions, Dentistry, Nursing and Pharmacy

Research theme: Health and Wellbeing

School: School of Science and Technology


The integrative neurophysiology research theme is a diverse team with projects spanning the breadth of neurodegenerative disease (age related neurodegeneration, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, stroke and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), neuropathy, neuroendocrinology, neurometabolism and neurodevelopmental diseases (seizures and epilepsy).

Our team uses a diverse array of skills to pursue research questions about the underlying molecular mechanisms driving development of neuronal disease. These skills include molecular and genetic profiling, image acquisition, electrophysiology, chemogenetics and behavioural analyses. We utilise a range of in vivo and in vitro disease models including rodents, Drosophila, mammalian cell lines, induced pluripotent stem cells and human tissues. NTU has signed up to the Concordat for Openness in Animal Research
