The Brain Tumour Research Centre is directly integrated with The Neuro, enabling interactions and collaborations with molecular, cellular, and developmental neuroscientists and research groups.
The Cognitive Neuroscience Research Group aims to understand the function and dysfunction of neural systems that control cognition and behavior.
The Epilepsy Research Group investigates new diagnostic techniques for epilepsy, which also provide a better understanding of the mechanisms of how epilepsy is generated and evolves.
The Neural Circuits group is a multidisciplinary unit whose investigators strive to understand the brain in terms of its function, development, plasticity, and possible mechanisms for its repair.
The Neurodegenerative Disorders Research Group is committed to advancing our understanding of the biological underpinnings of neurodegenerative disease in order to treat these debilitating disorders.
The Neurodevelopmental Disorders Research Group works to develop our understanding of the developmental mechanisms, both genetic and environmental, that are required to wire up the healthy brain, and how these might be derailed in disease.
Neuroimaging & Neuroinformatics
The Neuroimaging & Neuroinformatics research group at The Neuro regroups researchers interested in developing, advancing and using multimodal brain imaging methods and computational techniques.
The focus of the Neuroimmunological Diseases group is to understand how the immune system contributes to tissue injury and repair in diseases of the nervous system and how these features can be translated into therapy.
Rare Neurological Diseases
The Rare Neurological Diseases Group is focused on the study of rare neurological diseases defined as having a prevalence of less than 1:2000.

McConnell Brain Imaging Centre (BIC)
The mission of the BIC is to understand the structure and function of the brain, in health and disease, through the development of novel neuroscience approaches and neuroimaging methods, and thereby facilitate translation into clinical care.
Neurosurgical Simulation and Artificial Intelligence Learning Centre
The globalization of safe neurosurgery through simulation.
Cyclotron and Radiochemistry Facility
The Cyclotron and Radiochemistry Facility is specifically designed to enable researchers and staff to work safely with radioactive materials.
Centre for Neurological Disease Models
The Centre for Neurological Disease Models (CNDM) supports the responsible use of animals in research for the benefit of both humans and animals. The use of animals for scientific and technical education is supported when no acceptable alternatives exist
Clinical Biological Imaging and Genetic Repository (C-BIG Repository)
The C-BIG Repository is an Open Science collection of biological samples, clinical information, imaging, and genetic data from patients with neurological disease and from healthy control subjects.
Early Drug Discovery Unit (EDDU)
The unit has expertise in neuronal differentiation and CRISPR genome editing, the platform strives to work with academic and industry users via Open Science.
Microscopic Cellular Imaging Centre
Offers microscopic imaging equipment for researchers at The Neuro.
