ยป About us

The Institute for Interdisciplinary Brain and Behavioral Sciences (The Brain Institute) comprises a network of interdisciplinary researchers and specialists spanning the fields of psychology, psychiatry, neuroscience, neurology, anesthesiology, neurobiology, behavioral economics, computation and information processing in the brain, engineering, physics, anthropology, and cognitive science.

We thrive on communication, criticism, and stimulation, focused on the unification of research in the behavioral and brain sciences at the systems level, with an eye to clinical and useful applications, innovations with artificial intelligence, insights from neuropsychology, and philosophy of mind.

You may also have heard that the Brain Institute received more than 7 million dollars as research grant, in the field of neuroscience and philosophy of free will. In collaboration with 16 other top universities in the world between neuroscientists and philosophers, we aim to better understand how the brain enables and controls conscious, causal control of human behaviors.
