Carnegie Mellon, University of Pittsburgh Celebrate 20 Years of Advancing Brain Research Through Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition (CNBC)
The Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition (CNBC) will celebrate its 20th anniversary Oct. 17-18 with a series of events held on both universities’ Pittsburgh campuses. The CNBC, which now benefits from the newly launched CMU BrainHub initiative and Pitt's Brain Institute, integrates Pitt’s strengths in bioengineering, math, psychology, and basic and clinical neuroscience with Carnegie Mellon's strengths in psychology, computer science, biological sciences and statistics to investigate the neural mechanisms that give rise to human cognitive abilities. The center also trains the next generation of neuroscientists through an interdisciplinary graduate and postdoctoral training program and fosters close collaborations between faculty.
