Center for Memory and Brain
The Boston University Center for Memory and Brain (CMB) was established as a center of excellence in research, training, and teaching in the cognitive neuroscience of memory. The CMB is composed of faculty within the Departments of Psychology, Biomedical Engineering, and Mathematics. The small core group of neuroscientists and neural engineers that comprise the CMB complement each other in technical abilities and share the specific interest of characterizing brain mechanisms of memory. The CMB is unique in close working relations among its faculty in a continuity of expertise across the levels of analysis of memory. We pursue complementary and collaborative studies aimed at describing the “circuit diagram” for memory in the human brain, and we teach at all levels and train neuroscientists in this field.
