FAU NEUROSCIENCEâ€”Where Discovery Comes to Mind
The FAU Stiles-Nicholson Brain Institute supports research, education and community outreach, with efforts spanning all of the FAU campuses. The Brain Institute administrative home is on the FAU MacArthur campus in Jupiter, Fla., which also houses the Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College, the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience and The Herbert Wertheim UF Scripps Institute for Biomedical Innovation and Technology.
With more than 100 neuroscience faculty-level investigators located at FAU and affiliate research centers, the Brain Institute supports state-of-the-art research and innovative educational activities and is the sponsor for the FAU Neuroscience Student Organization.
Collectively, we seek to unlock the secrets of brain development, function and plasticity and how the mechanisms uncovered can be compromised to drive brain disorders, such as autism,, schizophrenia, depression and Alzheimerâ€™s disease.
