New international research effort homes in on specific behaviours.
A new, international neuroscience research centre has been launched. Similar international research efforts include the CERN Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland. To that end, the International Brain Lab sits at the centre of a network of 21 neuroscience laboratories. It will explore in detail how a mouse’s brain dictates its behaviour. Specifically, it will seek to pinpoint how a mouse’s brain operates at the neural level to generate the behaviour of foraging.
