NeuRA Discovery Portal

Due to the increasing volume of worldwide research into mental and brain-related disorders, there is a need to collect, collate and store these research findings in a free, online database. This allows the general public, consumers, carers, researchers, clinicians and policy developers to better understand, investigate and manage these disorders.

The Libraries within the NeuRA Discovery Portal provide only information that is gained from the most reliable research findings published in systematic reviews. Once these reviews are collected, the evidence is summarised and quality assessed so that the strength of the evidence can be measured. This evidence is presented in topics covering symptoms, treatments, diagnosis, risk factors, outcomes, co-occurring ‘comorbid’ conditions, epidemiology, and physical features associated with each disorder. Gaps in the evidence are flagged to encourage further research in those areas.

We hope the NeuRA Discovery Portal is a valuable resource for all to access.
