Neuroscience & Behavioural Disorders
The Neuroscience and Behavioural Disorders Programme (NBD) at Duke-NUS is focused on understanding the structure and function of the nervous system, and the neural mechanisms underlying human neurological, psychiatric and ophthalmological disorders. The research interests of our faculty range from the development and differentiation of neurons to brain imaging, perception and behavior. NBD actively collaborates with clinical faculty at Singapore General Hospital, National Neuroscience Institute (NNI), Institute of Mental Health and Singapore Eye Research Centre. The National Neuroscience Research Institute Singapore (NNRIS) - a Singapore wide initiative anchored by NNI and Duke-NUS - has been launched to improve treatment and seek cures through research for brain and nervous system disorders such as stroke, Parkinson disease and dementia.
