We undertake mechanistic research, clinical trials, methodology development (MRI, EEG and analytical approaches), with a particular focus on infant pain.
If you are interested in learning more about the development of the human infant brain then get in touch. We have lots of opportunities for students and staff to join our research group.
We are very proud of our public engagement work - here we highlight our research through videos, podcasts, information leaflets and other resources.
