Welcome to the website of the Georgian Center for Neuroscience Research (GCNR)
Neuroscience is a science of the brain that is concerned with the study of the structure and function of the nervous system. It’s included the evolution, development, cellular and molecular biology, physiology, anatomy and pharmacology of the nervous system, as well as computational, behavioral and cognitive neuroscience.
The Georgian Center for Neuroscience Research (GCNR) was established in 2014 with funding from the International Center for Intelligent Research. The main goal of the GCNR is to understand the development of the central nervous system and the cellular, molecular, synaptic, and network mechanisms of brain dysfunction to prevent or treat neurological, developmental, and behavioral disorders. Areas of neuroscience research strength at GCNR include:
1- Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience, 2- Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience, 3- Clinical Neuroscience
Georgian Center for Neuroscience Research is a member of many international organizations and focused on international collaboration with universities, societies, institutes and companies to conducted research in Neuroscience. The research carried at Georgian Center for Neuroscience Research aims to:
- Neurobiology of learning and memory, using behavioral and electrophysiological techniques - Understand the molecular and cellular functions of the brain - Investigate the behavioral, histological and molecular mechanisms of chronic stress and related psychological disturbances - Investigate the molecular mechanisms and therapy of brain disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Epilepsy, Neurotrauma, Multiple sclerosis (MS), Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and brain cancer.
