Brain and mental health from infancy to adolescence
Our Paediatric Neuroimaging Group, led by Professor Rebeccah Slater, brings together scientists, clinicians and engineers to further our understanding of early human brain development. Their research has been featured in the University's "Brain and Mental Health" campaign, which highlights how some of the best minds at one of the world's leading universities are building on centuries of knowledge, and shaping the future of brain and mental health in the context of infant neuroscience and developmental psychology.
