Scientists at BGU are studying the brain in ways that were unimaginable only a decade ago.

The brain is the seat of human consciousness. It guides our perceptions and governs our interpretation of the world around us. When the human mind is compromised – by disease or unexplained disorders – quality of life suffers. BGU researchers in the Zlotowski Center for Neuroscience and Brain Imaging Research Center are gaining insight toward developing new treatments and, possibly, cures for diseases like Alzheimer’s, stroke, trauma-induced epilepsy, Parkinson’s, and mental illness.

BGU’s Negev Autism Center, recently established in partnership with Soroka University Medical Center, is the first center in Israel that combines community and clinical care with research in the same location. The center aims to translate scientific discoveries into treatments and tools to improve quality of life for children with autism. Support the Autism Center>>
