Developmental & Degenerative Disorders

At the Center for Systems Neuroscience, a significant portion of research is dedicated to understanding and alleviating developmental and degenerative brain disorders. Researchers here are investigating causes of and treatments for diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, autism, Down syndrome, and Huntington’s disease from the molecular scale to the systems level. By leveraging resources at Boston University and in the surrounding area, CSN scientists seek to provide insights into these debilitating disorders.
