Health & Wellbeing

We are dedicated to improving the human condition. 

Improving individual wellbeing means understanding what is different between when we are healthy and when we are not. We work with clinicians to study what's happening in the brain when individuals have social or mental disorders. 

 

We utilize the most innovative technologies to understand the brain mechanisms driving these behaviors. Our methods are grounded in genetics, pharmacology, neurobiology, and economics using a trans-species, holistic approach.

From our findings we learn how to make better choices, how to build and strengthen relationships, and how to reach peak performance in our daily activities.

 

 

 

 

We also aim to translate this knowledge into improvements in the quality of life of people with conditions such as autism, addiction, depression, and ADHD.
