Understanding the brain is one of the great frontiers in all of science.
How does this biological organ in our skull literally create the world that we experience every waking moment? When I was a Caltech student we had no Caltech Brain Imaging Center (CBIC) at all. Now we have state-of-the-art MRI scanners that Caltech teams use to tackle topics ranging from memory, perception, and decision-making to autism, depression, and schizophrenia.
