Summary: Understanding the development, organization and functioning of the brain is one of the great challenges of the 21st century. Marseille is particularly well prepared for this task thanks to its unique expertise in France, covering all levels of analysis, from molecular and cellular approaches to cognitive psychology and behavioral sciences. The four research themes of NeuroMarseille are the following: 1) How does the brain develop to achieve the highest cognitive functions? 2) What are the multi-scale dynamics of neural networks in the healthy and diseased brain? 3) How to study the evolution of behaviours and their neural bases? 4) How to fight against the maladaptive mechanisms involved in response to ageing, neurodegenerative diseases and nervous system injuries?

The 10 research laboratories, the School of Neurosciences (NeuroSchool), the University Hospital (AP-HM) and biotechnology companies have joined forces to increase the attractiveness of the university, international collaborations, interdisciplinarity links with the clinical and industrial world and the integration of students into professional life. NeuroMarseille aims to interact with citizens and to address current challenges, in order to frame the present in a historical perspective to invent the future.
