Teaching the Brain How to Change Itself

Carnegie Mellon studies have shown that it is possible for the brain to change – to teach itself to act or behave differently. We are continuing to investigate this to uncover how neural interventions can help people with developmental disorders and neurological conditions.

Here is just a sampling of faculty who currently work on research related to teaching the brain to change itself.
