About the Program
The brain is at the core of our humanity. It enables creativity and problem solving, feeds empathy and altruism, and builds relationships and organizations. For thousands of years, philosophers and scientists have sought to understand how the brain and mind work, asking fundamental questions such as: What makes the human brain distinct from that of other species? How do neurons give rise to complex thought, emotion, memory, and behavior? How does the brain develop, how does it change with age, and what can go awry?
We are on the cusp of a neuroscience revolution thanks to groundbreaking discoveries, advanced technologies, and the computational power to leverage insights across many disciplines. On November 9th, more than three hundred members of the Yale community gathered at the Seaport Hotel on Boston’s waterfront for an exploration of the pioneering work being done at Yale and beyond to accelerate research and pave the way for transformative treatments.
