Research Theme

Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience

Interests

Research in the Morton lab is focused on understanding the mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration and on developing strategies to delay or prevent the death of neurones in injured or degenerating brain, particularly in Huntington's disease (HD). My work focuses on investigating the progressive disruption of circadian rhythmicity in Huntington's disease using transgenic mouse models and finding ways to prevent this disruption.
