    might also be involved in psychiatric disorders like anxiety, ADHD and autism.

Our Centre was funded by the Australian Research Council from 2014 – 2021, to investigate how the brain functions at multiple scales, from single cells and synapses, to circuits and networks, to whole brain systems.

To achieve this we brought together neuroscientists, engineers, psychologists and computer scientists to study the relationship between brain activity and behaviour at multiple spatial and temporal scales. In doing so the Centre contributed to the development of an integrated model of how the brain processes information and thereby advanced our understanding of how the brain interacts with the world.
