In 1977 the Associated Unit of Neuroscience was formed to bring together the different clinical neuroscience disciplines and, subsequently in 1987, it was upgraded to Departmental status - the present Neurosciences Research Unit. Since 1987 the Department has grown, largely as a result of its ability to attract external resources.

The Department was relocated to a new purpose-built £4m Clinical Sciences Centre containing research and education facilities on the Aintree Hospital site in May 2000, next to a modern clinical neuroscience building occupied by the Walton Centre for Neurology & Neurosurgery (WCNN).
