The Scully Center for the Neuroscience of Mind and Behavior is of critical importance in enabling Princeton scientists to advance knowledge of how the brain processes information and gives rise to language, emotions, problem solving, and decision making — the mental characteristics that make us human. The list below details research efforts in these areas.
