Welcome to the MRC Brain Network Dynamics Unit

The Medical Research Council Brain Network Dynamics Unit at the University of Oxford opened in April 2015, and is directed by Professor Peter Brown, MD. The Unit is uniquely multidisciplinary and integrates exceptional research programmes covering clinical, experimental and computational neuroscience. Our collective goal is to understand and exploit the moment-to-moment interactions between nerve cells that are critical for brain functions, with a special focus on the brain circuits underlying movement and memory. In achieving this, we aim to develop and deliver novel therapies that specifically target the disturbed circuit interactions arising in disease.
