Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA)

NeuRA is an independent, not-for-profit research institute based in Sydney, Australia.

As a leader in brain and nervous system research, our goal is to prevent, treat and cure brain and nervous system diseases, disorders and injuries through medical research.

Our researchers continue to make remarkable inroads in understanding the causes of, and developing treatments for, some of our most devastating diseases including; Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, spinal and child injury, Motor Neurone Disease, stroke rehabilitation, falls prevention, autism, sleep apnoea and chronic pain

Just a few of our many achievements include identifying the very first signs of Alzheimer's disease; the creation of digital apps to help clinicians and GPs assess falls in older people; insights into how our muscles fatigue; a paradigm shift in how we view the schizophrenic brain; and an exciting new international collaboration looking at a protein instrumental in Parkinson's disease.
