Mason Neuroscience

The Neuroscience Program at George Mason University, under the auspices of the Neuroscience Advisory Council (NAC), brings together experimental and theoretical scientists from the College of Science, College of Humanities and Social Science, Volgenau School of Engineering, and the Krasnow Institute for Advanced Studies.

Some of the key research centers include: Center for Neural Informatics, Structures, and Plasticity (CN3); Center for the Study of Neuroeconomics (CSNI); Center for Neural Dynamics (CND); and the Center for Applied Proteomics and Molecular Medicine (CAPMM).

PSU Institute of the Neurosciences

Penn State University's Institute of Neurosciences facilitates collaboration and networking between scientists and students in the areas of neuroscience at the Penn State Hershey College of Medicine and the University Park campus.

 

The Institute also provides oversight and coordination for neuroscience-related activities in education, research, patient care and outreach, while promoting an intellectual environment that enhances the interdisciplinary neuroscience educational experience from the undergraduate to postdoctoral levels.

Neuroscience @Penn

Neuroscience @Penn is based in the Department of Neuroscience with substantial coordination via the Mahoney Institute of Neuroscience.

Affiliated groups include: Behavioral Neuroscience at Penn, ; Center for Study of Addiction; Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, Center for Neuroscience and Society, Center for Sleep and Respiratory Neurobiology, Penn Medicine Neuroscience Center, Department of Neurology, Institute for Research in Cognitive Science, Penn Vision Research Center, Computational Neuroscience at Penn, and Neuroscience Graduate Group (NGG).

Princeton Neuroscience Institute

The Institute places particular emphasis on the close connection between theory, modeling and experimentation using the most advanced technologies.

Jon Cohen and David Tank serve as co-directors of the Institute. They view the Institute as a stimulus for teaching and research in neuroscience and related fields, as well as an impetus for collaboration and education in disciplines as wide ranging as economics and philosophy. Princeton collaborators come from an array of disciplines including mathematics, physics, engineering, chemistry, computer science, ecology and evolutionary biology, and economics.

John Hopkins Neuroscience

John Hopkins has two primary centers for neuroscience research: The Solomon Snyder Department of Neuroscience in the School of Medicine and the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences in the School of Arts & Sciences.

Current research ranges from investigating the development of the nervous system, synaptic plasticity and the molecular and cellular mechanisms of learning and memory to the neural basis of higher brain function such as perception and decision-making.

WVU Center for Neuroscience

The Center for Neuroscience (CN) mission is to advance knowledge in basic and translational neuroscience through team-based interdisciplinary research.

The CN functions to integrate all neuroscience research activities across a collaborative enterprise of 40 laboratories throughout the WVU campus. Our faculty members are highly interactive and participate with trainees in regular scientific and social events where we explore recent breakthroughs and discuss the major topics in neuroscience research.

UMD Neuroscience and Cognitive Science

The Neuroscience and Cognitive Science (NACS) Graduate Program offer cutting-edge interdisciplinary training in several areas: Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience; Cognitive Neuroscience; Cognitive Science; Computational Neuroscience; and Systems Neuroscience.

These research activities are carried out in laboratories housed in six colleges and 17 different departments on the University of Maryland, College Park campus. Through our official partnership with the National Institutes of Health and active collaboration with Children's National Medical Center, NACS graduate students may also receive research training.

University of Pittsburgh Brain Institute

The University of Pittsburgh Brain Institute focuses on unlocking the mysteries of normal and abnormal brain function.

The Brain Institute will support the efforts of more than 150 neuroscientists at the university and create seven new Centers, including the NeuroTech Center, which capitalizes on the University’s advances in brain-computer interfaces for paralyzed individuals, and the NeuroDiscovery Center, which will provide unique resources to enable innovative basic science research.

Carnegie Mellon ‘BrainHub’

The Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) BrainHub initiative spans across CMU’s colleges and schools, involving nearly 50 faculty and over 150 scientists.

A major facet of this initiative is increasing collaboration among faculty from disciplines such as computer science and engineering with those taking biological and behavioral approaches to neuroscience. Linking brain science to behavior via the application of machine learning, statistics, and computational modeling will be a hallmark of CMU’s efforts, along with commercialization of the new technologies and applications.
