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.

Our NeuroDiscovery Projects

Funded Research - Postdoctoral Fellowship

Membrane transport proteins are essential for life. They transport essential nutrients and minerals across the membrane barrier that surrounds each cell in the human body.

Funded Research - Postdoctoral Fellowship

The gut-brain axis is implicated in many essential physiological and psychological functions, ranging from feeding, emotion, motivation, to memory.

Funded Research - Postdoctoral Fellowship

Calcium imaging in freely behaving animals allows for the tracking of neuronal activity under approximately normal behavioral conditions.
