The Brain

Science is making rapid strides in its understanding of the structure and function of the brain. Imaging technologies offer vivid visuals of how we respond to joy, novelty, trauma, and loneliness. Maps of signaling pathways show us how the brain develops and ages, and how acts of imagination, art, and love foster a healthier mind.  By explaining human behavior at the neural level, new research is revealing the connection between mental and physical health, offering insights about resilience, and helping unlock human capacity. The science of the brain and the wonders of the mind give new meaning to the word “awesome.”
