NeuroDiscovery

Probing the inner workings of the brain

NeuroDiscovery applies cutting-edge techniques to make fundamental discoveries in brain science — discoveries that could unlock new medical treatments, transform education, inform public policy, and help us understand who we are. Our scientists peer at individual molecules operating where one neuron sends signals to the next. We trace networks of interconnected neurons to map the neural circuits responsible for different brain functions. And we tap into those circuits, tracking dynamic chemical and electrical signals to understand how our brains detect, integrate and transform stimuli into action.

The results of this highly interdisciplinary project will test the innovative hypothesis that molecular-scale mechanical signals sculpt synapse formation and will shed light on how latrophilin signaling regulates synaptogenesis in the context of both neurodevelopment and neuropsychiatric disease.
