Monash Institute of Cognitive and Clinical Neurosciences - MICCN . To comprehensively understand the human brain and answer the most pressing research questions in cognitive and clinical neurosciences, MICCN have a number of specialist research groups which complement our three integrated research programs – Addiction, Attention and Memory and Sleep.
BASE - Be Active Sleep & Eat - is designed to facilitate MICCN’s research through a unique multidisciplinary approach, enabling researchers, academics and professionals to integrate nutrition, sleep, exercise physiology and physical therapy research into practice within a single purpose-built facility.
The BASE facility has been designed to advance the science of nutrition, sleep, and activity, and maximize healthy outcomes for all Australians.
