Research at the UC Davis Center for Mind and Brain (CMB) is focused on understanding the human mind and its links to the brain. This includes basic cognitive processes, social and emotional processes, and development & aging. Our research explores how these processes function in typical brains and how they change in disorders such as autism, schizophrenia, ADHD, and Alzheimer’s disease.


Scientists at the UC Davis Center for Mind and Brain have access to some of the world's most advanced and highly sensitive analytical equipment.
