Dr Hayley Norths research at NeuRA investigates the neurobiology of mental illness specifically focusing on topics such as inflammation and neurogenesis (the birth of new brain cells) in the brains of people with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and depression. 

Hayley has dedicated her life to a scientific understanding of the brain and is passionate about sharing that understanding with the wider community to improve mental health and well-being through her work with Understand Your Brain: www.understandyourbrain.com.au.
