Overview

The Centre for Neuroscience

Understanding the structure, function and development of the brain in health and disease represents a fascinating challenge.

It requires studying the brain across different levels of organization using molecular, cellular, systems, cognitive and computational approaches.

Created in the centenary year of IISc, the Centre will leverage the existing expertise at the institute in engineering, mathematics, physics and biology to create a vibrant, interdisciplinary group to address problems that are beyond the capabilities of individual investigators.

The Centre will recruit faculty across wide-ranging disciplines to establish a strong program in basic neuroscience.

At the same time, it will develop strong links with clinical centres in order to introduce an element of translational research.
