Neuroscience

From foundational studies in molecular biology to current trials of a thought-controlled robotic arm, Caltech research has unlocked secrets of the brain. At Caltech, scholars connect naturally across a continuum from the basic biology of brain function to understanding human interaction, advancing basic discovery, neuro-inspired technologies, and medical treatments. Bolstered by the infrastructure and synergies of Caltech’s campus-wide neuroscience initiative, your gift can go far.
