The European Brain Research Institute (EBRI) is a non profit international research institute fully devoted to studies in Neuroscience.
The Institute was founded in 2002 by Nobel Laureate Rita Levi-Montal¬cini, in response to the need in Italy for a centre that would foster and promote brain research with the aim of finding new therapies for neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, and other neurological disorders.
EBRI aims to investigate and ultimately understand the biological basis of the higher functions of the vertebrate brain: the relationship between mind and brain and the mechanisms of memory. Today the techniques exist for exploring the brain at every level of its complexity and EBRI scientists will utilize approaches ranging from genetic and molecular techniques, neurophysiological recording, computational analysis, and quantitative analysis of behavior.
