CORNELL NEUROTECH is developing technologies and powerful new tools needed to reveal the inner workings of the brain, with a particular focus on how individual brain cells and complex neural circuits interact at the speed of thought. Solving the mystery of how circuits in the brain produce behavior, thoughts and feelings is one of the most important scientiﬁc frontiers in the 21st century, providing the foundation for understanding such profound behavioral deﬁcits as Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia, and depression. Making headway on these problems requires major technological innovation and its application to reveal the basics of brain organization and its function and dysfunction. Cornell Neurotech aims to ﬁll that gap by developing and applying technologies emerging at the interfaces between physics, engineering, chemistry, computer science and the life sciences.
