The BBI is a centralized community of investigators who pursue bold, impactful research on the brain and behavior. By fostering excellence and innovation and promoting collaborations between neuroscience and engineering, computer science, mathematics, physical sciences, cognitive sciences and humanities, the BBI unites existing strengths at the University of Maryland and provides the platform for the elevation and expansion of campus neuroscience.
Specific research foci targeted for growth and expansion include neuro-development and neuro-aging, the two temporal epochs most critical to the acquisition and maintenance of sensation, perception, cognition, mental health and physical health as well as most vulnerable to disruption by changes in the internal or external environment.
Existing expertise, contributors across campus and targets for growth and expansion in neuro-development.
