The Neuroscience Institute has a group of research physicians dedicated to promoting innovative research in the field of neuroscience.
The Neuroscience Institute (NSI)
The Neuroscience Institute (NSI) at Scott & White Healthcare and Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine conducts state-of-the-art translational research, with scientific interests including drug and device trials in humans.
The NSI is home to an invasive human brain chemistry and electrophysiology lab, neuroinflammation, neurogenesis, a neuromodulation lab, which includes our frameless stereotactic image-guided transcranial magnetic stimulator (TMS), an autonomic psychophysiology lab and a functional neuroimaging (fMRI) lab.
Among the main scientific objectives of the NSI is the multimodal analysis of human brain function in both healthy and diseased populations. Research within the NSI is highly collaborative and expanding, with an internationally recognized team of basic and clinical researchers in the Departments of Neurosurgery, Neurology, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, and Radiology.
