Welcome to the Synapse Centre for Neurodevelopment, ESNEFT
The Synapse Centre for Neurodevelopment operates from the Research and Development Department at the UK National Health Service (NHS) East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust (ESNEFT). It is a research centre designed to combine expertise from paediatric physicians; allied health professionals; industry and academic institutions.
Our ultimate aim is to research and improve knowledge in this important field and provide much needed support and new evidence-based personalised approaches to therapies, helping those with a range of neurodisabling conditions including Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Cerebral Palsy and genetic syndromes.
The research themes the Centre will be targeting within the field of neurodisability include: the microbiome/gut-brain axis; immunity/metabolism; sleep; behaviour; and excitation-inhibition imbalance in the brain.
