International Brain Lab (IBL)
Princeton Neuroscience Institute researchers are collaborating with scientists from 19 other laboratories around the world to create the International Brain Laboratory (IBL). Two PNI labs, led by Jonathan Pillow and Ilana Witten, are joining forces with researchers from Europe and the United States to crack the code on how the brain makes choices, by studying the activity and interactions between individual neurons across its different areas. The aim is to understand how the brain makes choices, down to the cellular level.
Rutgers-Princeton Center for Computational Cognitive Neuropsychiatry
In a major collaborative initiative, the Rutgers-Princeton Center for Computational Cognitive Neuropsychiatry (CCNP) opened its doors in February of 2017. The Center aims to improve the diagnosis of mental disorders, better predict their progression and eventually aid in developing treatments. The studies conducted at the center will address disorders ranging from depression, anxiety, and schizophrenia to obsessive-compulsive disorder and substance abuse. Read more at the CCNP website.

Intel Labs and PNI Project
PNI and Intel Labs are working together to break new ground in the study of the brain and read the human mind. Using a system that focuses on human mapping, Princeton neuroscientists and Intel software engineers have collaborated to develop new algorithms in order to achieve real-time brain scan processing.
