Support Mechanisms

Overview

The Schmitt Program on Integrative Brain Research (SPIBR) supports new research projects, postdoctoral and summer research fellows, visiting scientists, colloquium professors and symposia that fall within three areas of focus:

  • Learning, Plasticity, and Memory
  • The Senses and Behavior
  • The Neurobiology of Aging and Disease

The Schmitt Program is intended to catalyze and promote new directions of neuroscience research within the three target areas, and to encourage interdisciplinary and collaborative research, spanning cognitive and systems to cellular and molecular approaches.
