Scientists at BGU are studying the brain in ways that were unimaginable only a decade ago.
The brain is the seat of human consciousness. It guides our perceptions and governs our interpretation of the world around us. When the human mind is compromised – by disease or unexplained disorders – quality of life suffers. BGU researchers in the Inter-Faculty Brain Sciences School and Brain Imaging Research Center are gaining insight toward developing new treatments and, possibly, cures for diseases like Alzheimer’s, stroke, trauma-induced epilepsy, Parkinson’s, and mental illness.

The center aims to translate scientific discoveries into treatments and tools to improve quality of life for children with autism. Support autism research>>
