The Melbourne Neuropsychiatry Centre (MNC), a research centre under the University of Melbourne in Australia, provides a centre for research across several disciplines, with links to national and international research groups. The research ranges from neurobiological research in neuropsychiatric illness through to clinical based research aimed at bringing neuropsychiatric expertise to mental health services.
The MNC has established an international reputation in the areas of cognition and neuroimaging in schizophrenia with several important publications in high-profile international psychiatry, neurology and radiology journals. The MNC aims to ensure that people suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders benefit from cutting edge research that will improve management and treatment outcomes. Research also examines the effects of these disorders on the brain and how such changes might be prevented. The current director is Professor Christos Pantelis.
