Members

The BRI membership consists of approximately 300 faculty members from nearly 30 academic departments. These include members from traditional medical school departments, as well as members interested in the brain from the Schools of Engineering, Dentistry, Nursing, Public Health, and the College of Letters and Science.

All members of the Institute must be members of academic departments and devote their main research effort to programs advancing the knowledge of the function and structure of the brain and its relation to behavior. The following list of BRI members attests to the broad depth and interdisciplinary nature of the Institute, its members, and their research endeavors.
