The Schmitt Program on Integrative Neuroscience (SPIN) is a campus-wide initiative to promote our understanding of the nervous system and its disorders. The Program emphasizes interdisciplinary and collaborative approaches to novel and creative research and training that uniquely exploit talents from multiple laboratories across traditional institutional boundaries.
The Center for Visual Science at the University of Rochester was founded in 1963 by Robert M. Boynton to bring together scientists from a variety of disciplines with the common goal of pursuing excellence in vision research. CVS consists of more than 30 research laboratories
The Rochester Center for Brain Imaging (RCBI) is a research facility offering a state-of-the-art 3T magnet for the purpose of conducting investigations using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to researchers from the University of Rochester, neighboring institutions, and the science and technology industries.
The Cognitive Neurophysiology Lab at Albert Einstein School of Medicine (CNL-E) uses psychophysics, EEG, and MRI to study attention, multisensory perception and processing, and executive function. CNL-E investigators seek to identify processing deficits underlying clinical and developmental disorders such as autism, schizophrenia, and drug addiction. The CNL-R and CNL-E teams work very closely together. Many of our experiments are distributed over both locations.
The University of Rochester Batten Center (URBC) is a comprehensive Batten disease clinical and research center at the University of Rochester Medical Center in Rochester, New York. The URBC provides support and clinical services, contributes new knowledge, and works to find treatments that will slow, halt, or prevent disease in persons with Batten Disease
The Concepts, Actions, and Objects Lab studies the origins and organization of conceptual knowledge. Their team explores the cognitive and neural basis of conceptual domains such as numbers, symbols, tools, faces, and everyday objects. Their methods include cognitive and neuroimaging (fMRI) studies of adults, children, and non-human primates, as well as neuropsychological tests of individuals with brain damage.
