Neurological Health and Human Performance

Through greater understanding of the structure and function of the human brain and the neural basis of health, we can develop technology to improve cognitive performance, make strides against neurobiological disease and injury, and develop novel brain–computer interfaces that will transform how we interact with the world around us.
