To deepen our understanding of the brain through original research

  • Build paradigm-shifting neurotechnologies to investigate how the brain works across multiple scales, from synapses to large-scale networks.
  • Map and probe the neural circuits responsible for sensation, perception, and action.
  • Understand the dynamic processes that occur in the brain during development, learning, aging, and disease.
  • Develop computational algorithms to decode and encode brain activity.

To serve society by generating and disseminating knowledge and technology

  • Advance neurotechnology for research and clinical applications.
  • Provide a strong scientific foundation upon which clinical advances can be made.
  • Train the next generation of leaders in the field of neuroscience.

HWNI is deeply committed to increasing diversity and creating a welcoming, inclusive, and equitable environment where all of our graduate students, postdocs, staff, and faculty can thrive and achieve their highest potential.
