The Norman Cousins Center for Psychoneuroimmunology at UCLA investigates the interactions between the brain and the body, the role of psychological well-being for health and recovery from illness, and the translation of such knowledge into effective behavioral strategies that prevent disease, promote healing and enhance well-being across the life span. The Norman Cousins Center for Psychoneuroimmunology is partnered with The Mindful Awareness Research Center, whose mission is to foster mindful awareness across the lifespan through education and research to promote well-being and a more compassionate society.
