“Understanding the brain in all its complexity is impossible for any group to accomplish in isolation.”
-Arthur Toga, Director

We’ve built a diverse team of neurobiologists, mathematicians, and computer scientists, and a worldwide network of collaborators sharing data. Our goal is to increase the pace of discovery in neuroscience by better understanding how the brain works when it’s healthy and what goes wrong in disease.
