INS is comprised of various research groups that collectively make up the multidisciplinary team of researchers whom share a common approach to studying the brain as a dynamic system. Each group retains a specific foci to lend to the overall goal of bettering the understanding of the brain.
All research projects are multidisciplinary and multi-levels. They rely upon strong links between the different teams and the exchange of methods and concepts. The INS manages to combine a unique set of expertise including functional neuroanatomy, electrophysiology, imaging, behavior, psychophysics and theoretical neuroscience. Most of these techniques require complex analysis techniques, which often need to be developed in situ. As a result, developing new techniques and analytic tools is a constant component of institute activity. When the expertise is not available within INS, training is obtained outside, via our network of collaborations.
