Brain Injury

Finding protective agents to prevent brain damage after stroke or trauma, and encouraging the brain to repair itself following injury, are major aims of the Florey. Understanding how neurons are born, connect and are activated is crucial to this process.

The Brain Development group aims to discover how newly born neurons find their way to the correct location, make the appropriate connections and are electrically activated.
