  • Photo Azeddine Tahiri How does a conglomeration of cells and chemical signals enable us to think feel and sense the world around us This is the mystery neuroscientists confront daily The good news is that we are unearthing new clues to the mystery The Picower Institute for Learning and Memory s highly collaborative cross disciplinary strategy allows us to explore the nature of the brain from the most basic biological interactions of genes and proteins to in depth explorations of cellular and systemic mechanisms Many Picower Institute faculty members also are inventors of unique technologies and techniques that are redefining the practice of neuroscience This comprehensive approach places Picower Institute researchers in the perfect position to study the mechanisms behind developmental disorders such as autism psychiatric illnesses such as schizophrenia and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer s disease conditions that affect millions worldwide The Picower Institute is seizing every opportunity to focus our broad range of scientific talents on a single goal improving quality of life through a thorough understanding of our most complex and fascinating organ Li Huei Tsai Ph D Director The Picower Institute for Learning and Memory Director s Message Leadership History and Mission RIKEN MIT Core Facilities and Resources Bioinformatics Resource Office iPS Core Facility Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research Viral Vector Core Facility Graduate Students Careers Bioinformatics Resource Office Fan Gao Ph D Supervisor of Bioinformatics Resource Office Email fangao mit edu Phone 617 324 2471 Office 46 2303L iPS Core Facility Tak Ko Reseach Scientist iPS Core Facility Supervisor Email kotak mit edu Phone 617 324 4457 Office 46 4277 Stanley Center Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research Email stanleyadmin broadinstitute org Phone 617 714 8400 Viral Vector Core Facility Rachael Neve Ph D Director Viral Vector Core Facility Email rneve mit edu Phone 617

  • scholars at all levels from undergraduates to post docs Home About History and Mission In 1994 MIT first established a world class multidisciplinary neuroscience research center initially with a grant from the Sherman Fairchild Foundation and then continued with long term support from the RIKEN Brain Science Institute and the National Institute of Mental Health In 2002 under the directorship of Dr Susumu Tonegawa we received an extraordinary gift from the Picower Foundation the Center was renamed as the Picower Institute for Learning and Memory and was expanded to thirteen faculty members and as many research groups with a total staff of nearly 200 Our Mission We hold as our ultimate mission to understand the mysteries of the mind through study of the brain We dedicate ourselves to the principle that the advancement of knowledge comes through an unwavering commitment to the integrity of the science We recognize that achieving these goals will require the shared vision and collective efforts of all members of our community We embrace the beauty of truth and the power it holds to change the world This we believe and this we shall accomplish Director s Message Leadership History and Mission RIKEN MIT Core Facilities and Resources Bioinformatics Resource Office iPS Core Facility Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research Viral Vector Core Facility Graduate Students Careers Bioinformatics Resource Office Fan Gao Ph D Supervisor of Bioinformatics Resource Office Email fangao mit edu Phone 617 324 2471 Office 46 2303L iPS Core Facility Tak Ko Reseach Scientist iPS Core Facility Supervisor Email kotak mit edu Phone 617 324 4457 Office 46 4277 Stanley Center Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research Email stanleyadmin broadinstitute org Phone 617 714 8400 Viral Vector Core Facility Rachael Neve Ph D Director Viral Vector Core Facility Email rneve mit edu Phone 617 253

  • program profits from the exchange of research staff between RIKEN and MIT The RIKEN MIT CNCG is lead by Nobel laureate Professor Susumu Tonegawa Research The objective of this research is to decipher molecular cellular circuits and brain system mechanisms underlying learning and memory and decision making by combining genetic techinques including transgenics knockouts optogenetics and virus vector mediated genetic manipulations with a variety of analytical methods For this purpose CNCG scientists use a highly interdisciplinary approach that includes molecular and cellular biology immunohistology confocal and multi photon microscopy in vitro and in vivo electrophysiology and behavioral paradigms As research targets CNCG focuses on the function of the hippocampus both its intrinsic circuits and extrinsic circuits involving the neocortex limbic system and amygdala Another focus of the research is on the identification and characterization of memory engram bearing cells in the hippocampus and amygdala CNCG scientists also apply the interdisciplinary approach to the neuromodulatory dopamine serotonin and norepinephrin systems to study the neural circuit mechanisms for decision making attention and control of impulsiveness In the coming years the targets of CNCG s research will extend to include extra hippocampal neural circuits with the aim of deciphering neural mechanisms underlying decision making and its relationship with expectation Resources RIKEN RIKEN Brain Science Institute RIKEN BSI RIKEN MIT Center for Neural Circuit Genetics RIKEN MIT CNCG Director s Message Leadership History and Mission RIKEN MIT Core Facilities and Resources Bioinformatics Resource Office iPS Core Facility Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research Viral Vector Core Facility Graduate Students Careers Bioinformatics Resource Office Fan Gao Ph D Supervisor of Bioinformatics Resource Office Email fangao mit edu Phone 617 324 2471 Office 46 2303L iPS Core Facility Tak Ko Reseach Scientist iPS Core Facility Supervisor Email kotak mit edu Phone 617 324 4457 Office 46 4277
