The mission of the Brain and Behavior Initiative (BBI) at the University of Maryland (UMD) is to revolutionize the interface between engineers and neuroscientists by generating novel tools and approaches to understand complex behaviors produced by the human brain.

Three broad themes highlight our existing strengths in brain and behavior research: neural circuits, learning & plasticity, motor control; sensation, perception, communication; and mental health. These research themes are complemented by faculty in the physical sciences, who integrate work across the spectrum of brain research by developing and refining tools.
