What's in this issue?
In this issue of NeuRA Magazine we celebrate the Institute’s three decades of impact.
We look back at key moments in NeuRA’s history – including some of the landmark scientific, clinical and consumer impacts achieved by our incredible researchers.
Scientia Professor George Paxinos, NeuRA’s resident cerebral cartographer, psychologist and author, tells us what it’s like to discover new regions of the brain…and to write an eco-novel based on neuroscience principles. After 21 years at NeuRA, Professor Paxinos and his team are embarking on their most ambitious project yet: developing a 3D map of the living human brain.
We explore Scientia Professor Kaarin Anstey’s work to keep people driving safely for longer as they age. Her research team is currently recruiting volunteers to take part in a multidimensional study that aims to decrease risks and improve driver safety in older Australians.
PhD student Yuchen Xie shares the research she’s doing to help older people and their families navigate the complexities of the home-based aged care system.
