Our brain – and how we use it to live our lives to the fullest– is at the center of ASU’s knowledge enterprise. As lifelong learners, when our brains are healthy, we incubate new ideas, find solutions to life’s challenges and create new forms of art. But, all too often, our brains and vitality can be diminished by stress, age, addictions or disease.
That’s why Arizona State University has launched a partnership, the ASU-Banner Neurodegenerative Disease Research Center, to accelerate progress toward finding the key to such diseases as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, other forms of dementia and brain disorders.
Two of the largest academic science units in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the School of Life Sciences and the Department of Psychology, offer degrees and a range of undergraduate research experiences in neuroscience, psychology and behavioral sciences, as well as an interdisciplinary graduate program in neuroscience for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. This program emphasizes an approach that integrates molecular, cellular, systems, behavioral, cognitive analysis - to investigate basic, translational and clinical questions about the relationship between brain and behavior.
