Brain-Behaviour Unit (BBU)

The Brain-Behaviour Unit (BBU) is a multi-disciplinary, UCT-accredited collaborative hub of psychiatric neuroscience research.  It focuses on work particularly relevant to the South African and African context, and comprises three interlinked Groups:

1. Psychiatric Neurogenetics
2. Psychiatric Neuroimaging
3. Translational Neuroscience

The BBU uses a range of methods, including neurogenetics, neuroimaging, and animal models, with the aim of ultimately advancing diagnostic tools and treatments for people with mental disorders.
