Faculty campuswide will be participating in the new Staglin IMHRO (International Mental Health Research Organization) Center for Cognitive Neuroscience to probe how the human mind works, using state-of-the-science imaging technology. “The Staglin IMHRO Center for Cognitive Neuroscience is an exciting addition to UCLA,” said Scott Waugh, executive vice chancellor and provost. “It will advance scientific understanding, promote innovative teaching and host public programs that can inform the community about fascinating new developments in cognitive neuroscience. UCLA is on the cutting edge of the revolution in mental health, and this center will greatly enhance UCLA’s strengths in this vital area.”
The center, which is scheduled to open officially in July, will be housed on the C floor of the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior.
