In response to President Obama’s BRAIN initiative, Columbia University created the NeuroTechnology Center (NTC) in 2014. The interdisciplinary center includes faculty from the School of Arts and Sciences (A&S), the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS), the Zuckerman Mind, Brain, and Behavior Institute (Z-MBBI) and the Kavli Institute for Brain Science. Our common goal is to develop methods to better understand how the brain works.
