Kavli Institute for Neuroscience at Yale University
The goal of the Kavli Institute for Neuroscience at Yale University, endowed by the Kavli Foundation, is to understand how nerve cells and the circuits they form embody knowledge of the outside world, and how they combine that knowledge with past experience and future goals to foster behavior.
The Kavli Institute focuses on developing and applying innovative approaches to research, including the use of model systems, that have the capability of increasing our understanding of the human brain. A multidisciplinary research strategy, ranging from molecular genetics to behavior, is used to explore the development, cellular organization and function of the nervous system, which mediates perception, memory, language and thought.
