ABOUT

This is the century of the brain. The next great change in the human history will occur when we gain control over our brains. We will understand why we behave the way we do, why we get sick, and what we can do to help.

The UCSB BRAIN INITIATIVE is the epicenter of our campus’ effort to change our future. UCSB has a long history of inventing technologies that have transformed our society. Now, our cross-disciplinary research teams are attacking the most fundamental problems in neuroscience and neuroengineering.
