People & Interests
Interest in the neurosciences is spreading throughout the UM community, attracting increasing numbers of STEM and non-STEM faculty, and spawning new creative collaborations that impact both academics and research. Much of the STEM-based brain research at UM falls into three general focus areas: Motor Sensory Systems, Neural Injury & Rehabilitation; Learning, Behavior & Cognitive Function; and Molecular, Cellular & Physiological Neuroscience. Additionally, there is growing interest in the intersection of neuroscience with disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, arts and education. Indeed, a major goal of the Brain Initiative is to connect STEM and non-STEM faculty and students that share an interest in neuroscience.
