Kavli Institute for Neuroscience

General Information

The goal of the Kavli Institute for Neuroscience at Yale University, endowed by the Kavli Foundation, is to elucidate nervous system development and function. Ultimately, we seek to understand how synaptic circuits form, embody knowledge of the outside world, and combine that knowledge with past experience and future goals to generate behavior.
