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 - Big Idea
Investigating how the brain develops from infancy to adulthood across species, focusing on how the interplay between structural development, functional development, experience and affect brain computations and ultimately behavior.
Funded Research - Big Idea
Building a pipeline to explore chemicals synthesized in plants as potential new treatments for neurological disease and as a window into the chemistry of the brain.
