BrainParkUsing neuroscience to create healthy habits, brains and communities

As experts in the neuroscience behind compulsive behaviours, unhealthy habits and how they can affect the brain, the BrainPark team investigate how everyday lifestyle interventions can be used to improve brain and mental health.

Working with industry, healthcare and community partners, BrainPark researchers are developing novel digital assessment tools and innovative lifestyle and technology-based therapies to improve the physical, mental and brain health of Australians.

Using the BrainPark facilities, which are co-located with Monash Biomedical Imaging (MBI), the BrainPark research group covers four research streams:

  1. Behaviour
  2. Decision-making
  3. Clinical research
  4. Technology development

BrainPark is a joint venture between the Turner Institute for Brain and Mental Health and MBI. BrainPark’s co-location with the MBI’s state-of-the-art imaging and other scientific testing facilities enables seamless integration of brain science and imaging to determine how these interventions change the brain, and for whom they are most effective.

The development of BrainPark has been possible through a generous donation from The David W. Turner Endowment Fund, further supported by investment from Monash University and the Wilson Foundation.
