“Healing the Social Brain”

The Center comprises faculty and trainees with a common goal to understand the functioning of the social brain to promote mental and physical well-being. Scientific discovery, training, and community engagement are the pillars of our mission. We promote excellence in research while training the next generation of neuroscientists to improve mental health outcomes of the social domain. Diversity is a priority in all Center activities.
