SUNY Brain

The brain is the center of sensation and intellectual activity in our bodies—it is the core of who we are. And yet we still know so little about how this organ functions. For example, some questions that remain to be answered include: How does the brain control bodily functions, such as urinary processes? What happens in the brain to cause neurodegenerative diseases, such as glaucoma? Can we pinpoint the activities of single neurons by linking them with certain behaviors? Can we create imaging techniques that allow us to gain a much greater understanding of which areas of the brain control which functions?

In 2014, the SUNY Brain network invested $808,000 in research projects on neuroscience, brain mapping, and vision research. By collaborating across disciplines and campuses, SUNY researchers are making advances that promise to help solve some of the mysteries of the brain.
