Scientists and health professionals work together in the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences (NDCN) to understand  how the brain works and develop treatments that directly benefit patients. The department’s research focusses around five areas: neuroimaging, ophthalmology, anaesthetic, neurology, and stroke and dementia. Many of the department’s staff are embedded in clinical units, enabling them to share facilities, expertise, and knowledge, and realise their goal of applying learning to clinical practice.
