The institutes explores principles and mechanisms leading to communication disorders of these systams and analyses the possibilities of inter-species transmission. The prototype of these disorders are serious neurodegenerative diseases of people and animals, caused especially by pathological proteins such as tauons and prions.Teh institute co-ordinates neuroimmunilogical research and PhD education in neuroimmunilogy in Slovakia. Within of framework of the International Centre of Neuroimunology (INIC) it co-ordinates research activities of laboratories involved in the Centre.The main collaborators of the institute are: MRC, Laboratory og Molekular Biology (Cambridge, UK), International School for Advanced Studies (Trieste), Chemical Neuropathology Laboratory (New York).
