About Us

The Priority Research Centre for Translational Neuroscience and Mental Health (CTNMH) is focused on increasing understanding of brain/mental disorders including schizophrenia, stroke, pain and sensory dysfunction, ageing and cognition, depression, and balance disorders.

The Centre encompasses research across a broad range of focus areas including schizophrenia, stroke, pain and sensory dysfunction, ageing and cognition, depression, addiction, stroke, dementia, and balance disorders.

This is achieved through multi-disciplinary collaboration across several levels, namely, the basic sciences, translational, intervention and population research aiming for both discovery and, importantly, translation between basic and clinical neuroscience.

The CTNMH is a unique research entity in Australian terms, bringing together high-quality neuroscience research in nationally important disease areas (Schizophrenia, Depression, Addiction, Stroke, Dementia, Balance disorders, and Pain), and building tight linkages across multiple levels of enquiry and between basic neuroscience, clinical neuroscience and mental health and neurological health service delivery.
