About Us

The Center for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN) links researchers in multiple departments and disciplines at the University of Washington to advance knowledge in systems and behavioral neuroscience. CIN fosters interdisciplinary interactions and promotes new connections between faculty and neuroscience research programs that use integrative approaches to understanding brain function. Topics of interest include adaptive behaviors, motor function, sensation, perception, learning, memory, communication, and decision-making. CIN’s mission is to strengthen collaborative investigation of brain function on multiple levels of analysis, including genomic, cellular, behavioral, computational, and evolutionary. The research of CIN faculty provides the foundation for applications to human neurological disease for disorders ranging from tremors to learning disabilities.
Support for CIN-related events has come from different sources over the years, including the College of Arts and Sciences, College of Engineering, the Psychology Department’s Alan Edwards and Roger Loucks Endowments, and the Center for Human Development and Disabilities.
