El grup neix amb l'objectiu de poder englobar tota la recerca desenvolupada en l'Hospital sobre el malalt neurològic: malalties neurodeneratives, epilèpsia, esclerosi múltiple, cefalea i ictus. L'esperit del grup és poder estendre un pont al consolidat grup de Neurociències de l'Institut i d'aquesta forma poder formalitzar una recerca traslacional madura. [Més informació].
