Integrating Knowledge Across Disciplines
CIBR's approach is to integrate knowledge at the genetic, molecular, cellular, network and behavioral levels to better understand a wide spectrum of neuronal functions and brain-related diseases.
Our investigators have determined that children with autism may not generate the brain rhythms needed to understand language. We are pursuing new therapies that could improve the social and communication skills of these children.
Our researchers are investigating the cellular and molecular factors that trigger epilepsy, with the goal of correcting those factors and curing the disease.
We have identified key mechanisms behind sudden infant death syndrome, sleep apnea and other breathing disorders, paving the way toward treatments that disarm these conditions.
We are among the first in the nation to offer a surgical treatment that gives children with hydrocephalus the hope of a life without the burden of a shunt.
The discovery of mutations in genes that help regulate brain growth provides clues about malformations – and other complex conditions like cancer, autism and epilepsy.
