Established in 1991, the UC Davis Center for Neuroscience seeks to understand the function of the human brain in health and in illness. Schizophrenia, autism, depression, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, the after-effects of stroke treating: treating, curing and perhaps even preventing these and other mental disorders all depend on developing an intimate understanding of the human brain.  

Teams of internationally recognized scientists work in areas ranging from cellular and molecular neurobiology, through systems and developmental neuroscience, to studies of human perception, attention, memory, language, and the nature of consciousness.  The discoveries they make are the raw material that will be translated into advances in the clinic, through close collaboration between bench scientists and physicians.
