We are at the forefront of one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century - deciphering how the brain works. Oxford Neuroscience coordinates neuroscience research across four University of Oxford campuses, including departments at the John Radcliffe and Warneford Hospitals. Our aim is to translate discoveries from the laboratory through to improving clinical practice.
