Organization profile

The Institute for Brain and Neuroscience Research (IBNR) takes a multipronged approach toward understanding neural circuits and their disruption. Institute neurobiologists examine the simple nervous systems of animals such as crustaceans and worms, while mathematicians develop models of neuronal patterns. IBNR biochemists conduct laboratory analyses of the biochemical building blocks of internal mechanisms such as the circadian clock. The Institute is equally committed to mitigating the effects of disabling neurological disorders and injuries by designing devices and therapies that help people function to their full potential. In these efforts, neurorehabilitation and biomechanics engineers work closely with imaging experts who have devised ways to map the brains of people affected by diseases such as Alzheimer’s and developmental conditions such as ADHD and dyslexia, as well as changes in brain patterns in response to visual and hearing disorder treatments that our researchers develop. IBNR researchers work closely with clinicians in the region and throughout the country on a variety of therapies. Our biomedical engineers partner with the Kessler Institute and hospital-based rehabilitation centers to develop exoskeletons and other devices that will help people with neurological disorders participate in classrooms and in workplaces; our traumatic brain injury specialists collaborate with New Jersey-based physicians and medical researchers on their work for the U.S. Department of Defense and with clinicians and researchers at pediatric hospitals from Pennsylvania, to Alabama, to California.
