FIU physicist Angie Laird is leading a team of researchers embarking on a new phase of the National Science Foundation’s BRAIN Initiative.
FIU faculty are collaborating across the disciplines on projects related to neuroscience and, specifically, the brain. In addition to the projects featured here, the following hold great promise, and most have attracted funding from national science foundations and public agencies.
FIU scientists from across the disciplines 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.
