How does the brain interact with the world?

The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Integrative Brain Function seeks to better understand how the brain interacts with the world by focusing on the brain’s intricate structure and functions that underlie attention, prediction and decision-making.

To achieve this goal, we are facilitating collaborations amongst Australia’s leading brain researchers in the fields of brain anatomy and physiology, neuronal networks, neural circuits, brain systems, human behaviour and neurotechnologies.

Our integrative brain research crosses four inter-connected themes:

Brain Systems
Neural Circuits
Cells and Synapses
Models & Technologies
