questions final

Your brain is your entire world, and it’s ours too.  You brain is intimate.  It is personal.  In fact, your brain is your everything.  It powers your emotions, memories, expressions and thoughts.  It drives curiosity and fascination.  It enables you to achieve your goals and impact the world around you.

In stark contrast to the vast importance of the brain, our understanding of the brain remains one of the greatest challenges of today.  At MPFF and MPFI, we relentlessly pursue the boundaries of knowledge to uncover answers to fundamental questions about the brain.   Today, there is a large gap in what we know about the brain that limits significant advances in treatments and cures for brain disorders.
