Organization profile

Penn State Neuroscience Institute works to:

  • Assure excellence in basic and clinical research studies that increase understanding of the normal and diseased brain.
  • Promote the translation of research findings into new treatments for neurological disease, such as brain tumors, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease and stroke.
  • Improve the care of patients with neurological and neurobehavioral diseases, such as confused mental states, Alzheimer’s disease and abnormal behaviors.
  • Provide a rich intellectual environment, so those studying neuroscience have the best possible educational experience.
