What is clinical and applied neuroscience?
Medicine, robotics, neuroethics, education, sport, animal welfare - neuroscience is around us in numerous different ways. Studying brain science in context can then, in turn, inform fundamental research.
Clinical applications have the greatest impact on people lives. Molecular to epidemiological studies all contribute to clinical neuroscience and immense progress has been made in treating neurological and psychiatric disorders, such as epilepsy and depression. But clinical needs, with an aging population and global travel, grow greater each day.
Visual perception in art, computing, artificial intelligence, learning in the classroom, legislation, and farming are just some of the other areas which benefit from applied neuroscience research.
By continuing to translate findings between theory and practice we will gain further benefits and deeper understanding of the brain.
