C-BIN Secures Conte Center Grant Renewal

Schroeder Milham

Dr. Charles Schroeder, Director of the Translational Neuroscience Laboratories, and Michael Milham, Director of the Center for Biomedical Imaging & Neuromodulation, received a five-year renewal of their Silvio O. Conte Centers for Basic Neuroscience or Translational Mental Health Research P50 grant titled “Neurobiology and Cognitive Role of Slow Brain Network Fluctuations“.

This Conte Center investigates the slow brain network fluctuations that control the ebb and flow of cognition and related behavioral performance on a moment-by-moment basis.

Understanding these slow fluctuations and their underpinnings has broad scientific and public health significance, as they provide critical scaffolding for most, if not all other brain operations.

This Center’s discoveries will contribute to the integrated mechanistic understanding of how neural activity and autonomic influences combine in the organization of behavior and cognition, and to improved treatment of neural, autonomic, and behavioral-cognitive deficits in people with neuropsychiatric disorders.
