The study of the nervous system's molecular, cellular, developmental, and functional aspects comprises neuroscience research, and is key to understanding the many facets of human sleep, pain, and addiction.
Researchers in SRI’s Center for Health Sciences Neuroscience Program conduct extensive research using biochemistry, molecular biology, proteomics, electrophysiology, and behavioral testing techniques. They also study the brain's structure and function using magnetic resonance imaging technology.
SRI's Center for Neuroscience combines world-class basic science with contract research to provide an environment ideal to partner with clients and help advance research and development programs. We conduct basic research in sleep, circadian rhythms, pain, and addiction using techniques in biochemistry, molecular biology, proteomics, electrophysiology, and behavioral testing.
