Neurosciences Research Foundation carries on fundamental research and educational programs in the field of neuroscience primarily at and under the name of The Neurosciences Institute (NSI). NSI was founded in 1981 as an independent, nonprofit organization by Nobel laureate Gerald M. Edelman, M.D., Ph.D., to emphasize the scientific “big picture” and devise and test innovative theories of how the brain works, specifically higher brain functions. Through research that cuts across many separate disciplines, the Institute seeks a complete view of how the brain and central nervous system develop and function, how they together determine human behavior, and how they form the basis for individuality and creativity.
