Who we are

The main goals of the Dynamic Brain Circuits cluster are:

  • to understand brain circuit connections and their changes in diseases and the at-risk brain;
  • to empirically model brain diseases to establish mechanistic insights; 
  • to define the molecular genetic etiology of brain disorders;
  • to translate new knowledge towards treating brain disorders with novel circuit-based therapeutic approaches​;
  • to ensure new scientific results are available to all by promoting, developing and practicing open science;

Dynamic Brain Circuits-based research is a logical step towards developing the first circuit-based treatments for brain disease. The next phase of the cluster will facilitate training and collaboration to develop new models of brain connectivity disorders and analyze multiple streams of imaging, genetic, and biochemical data.
