How do millions of individual neurons work together to give rise to behavior at the level of a whole organism? How do our brains work?

Training researchers to answer these fundamental, unanswered questions is the goal of the Princeton Neuroscience Institute graduate program.

Students in this program learn to use the latest techniques and approaches in neuroscience and are trained how to think and how to develop new techniques and approaches. Creativity and originality in research are essential to cracking the puzzle of the brain.
