Neuroscience

Neuroscience is a flourishing area of research at Universidad de los Andes. We are a community of 12 different groups affiliated to the Schools of Medicine, Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences, seeking to understand the functioning of the nervous system and its behavioral consequences at multiple levels: from single-cell physiology to cooperative social exchanges. Our aim is to advance interdisciplinary research that addresses fundamental aspects of sensory and cognitive mechanisms, that helps develop new tools of data collection and analysis, and that translates into solutions for the health and well-being of our society. To this end, we actively work in collaboration with partner institutions in Colombia, Latin America and throught the world.
