Welcome to the Neuroscience and Mental Health Institute!
The Neuroscience and Mental Health Institute is a multi-faculty, interdisciplinary teaching and research Translational Science Institute consisting of neuroscientists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists, mental health specialists, rehabilitation specialists, caregivers, students, post-doctoral fellows, research associates, and technicians. Members of the NMHI are dedicated to the exploration of how our nervous system functions, the basis for disease, and translation of discoveries into improved prevention and treatment options for people worldwide. The nervous system remains one of the great scientific mysteries, and an understanding of its function has implications beyond biology and health and into the very foundations of human society.
Please join us on September 20 for the 2nd Annual Run for Brain Research at Hawrelak Park at 9:00 a.m.
