Brain Gains

Understanding the brain is one of the great frontiers in all of science.

Now we have state-of-the-art MRI scanners that Caltech teams use to tackle topics ranging from memory, perception, and decision-making to autism, depression, and schizophrenia.

The United Nations predicts that 70% of the world’s population will live in urban centers in the next 30 years. The city of the future will need to function differently than it does today, and the change over the next three decades will be rapid.
