Brain-Body Center (BBC)

The Brain-Body Center's mission is to translate neurobiological principles into the treatment of individuals with social communication and social relationship problems. The Center draws together neuroscientists, endocrinologists, neuroanatomists, neurobiologists, psychiatrists, and psychologists who are interested in the neurobiological mechanisms of social behavior, behavioral pathology, developmental disorders, and emotional regulation.
Team members conduct research aimed at understanding the interdependence between the nervous system and social behavior. In addition to the dissemination of research findings through traditional professional vehicles, such as peer-reviewed articles, conferences, and workshops, the Center is working to develop teaching and training modules for clinicians and scientists that will describe new paradigms relating neural processes to social behavior.
