The Center for Brain and Cognition at the University of California, San Diego has two distinct research agendas - a practical one and a theoretical one.

Our practical agenda: develop new therapeutic approaches for the treatment of neurological and psychiatric conditions such as chronic pain, stroke, anorexia and childhood autism.

Our theoretical agenda: understand the neural basis of perception, cognition, language, attention and memory.
