Our brains determine who we are; how we see, hear, and smell, how we move, touch, and talk, how we remember and forget, how we feel, expect, and plan. The mission of the CMBN is to advance understanding of the brain’s structure and function through excellence in neuroscience research and training.
Our researchers pursue this goal through an integrative approach that cuts across the boundaries of traditional disciplines. They combine molecular, electrophysiological, neurochemical, anatomical, imaging, behavioral, and neuropsychological methods to analyze how the brain works, develops, interacts with the environment, and is modified by experience in health and disease. CMBN is also committed to serving the academic and surrounding Newark communities through educational outreach, community service, and research internship programs that train undergraduate and high school students.
