FIU takes an interdisciplinary approach to neuroscience research

The brain is the most complex organ in the human body. It makes up two percent of a body’s mass yet uses 20 percent of its blood and oxygen supplies. It controls the way we think. It controls our movements. It dictates the way we make decisions. And it determines how we recall memories. It is powerful yet fragile.

FIU scientists from across the disciplines — medicine, engineering, arts and sciences — have dedicated their careers to studying mental processes in the healthy and the diseased human brain. They study brain activity, including language, cognition, emotion, action, sensory perception and mental health, while working to develop new technologies in cognitive neuroimaging.
