About us

The Cerebral Function Unit is a regional clinical service for the investigation, diagnosis and care of early-onset and rare neurodegenerative dementias. We are located at Salford Royal Hospital and are part of Manchester Centre for Clinical Neurosciences.

Our goal is to improve clinical services, care, and treatment for people with neurodegenerative conditions through greater accuracy of clinical diagnosis and better understanding of the cognitive and behavioural symptoms of these conditions.

The CFU has an international reputation for its multidisciplinary research, which spans the fields of neurology, neurobiology, neuropathology, neuropsychology, psychiatry and genetics.
