Berkeley Neuroscience is the nexus for campus-wide multidisciplinary neuroscience research. We are a collaborative research community of over 60 faculty members in 12 academic departments. Berkeley Neuroscience aids its faculty by coordinating major research initiatives, running the Neuroscience PhD Program, and supporting leading-edge research and technology centers. The mission of Berkeley Neuroscience is to harness the unique strengths in UC Berkeley’s world leading programs in engineering, chemistry, biology, psychology, statistics and computation to build next-generation experimental, analytical and theoretical approaches to probe neuronal function. We seek to understand how the brain generates behavior and cognition, and to better understand, diagnose, and treat neurological diseases.
